Bristol Plays Music’s flagship Choral Centre takes place at Music Centre West in Southmead on Friday evenings for girls in years 8 and 9, and is the home to the Bristol Youth Choir. Led by a wonderful team of choral leaders and singing teachers, the choir develops singers from the age of 7.
This is the flagship Chamber choir made up of boy and girls in school years 12 and 13 directed by established Bristol choir director David Ogden. Singing a wide range of music in four and more parts this choir trains singers for the many choral singing opportunities at music college, university and beyond. It also promotes the work of Bristol Youth Choir and Bristol Music Trust with performances for corporate, charitable and educational organisations.

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.
Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.
