WELCOME TO BERWICK ARTS CHOIR
Berwick Arts Choir is a friendly, mixed voice choir of around sixty members based in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.
We enjoy singing a varied repertoire of major choral works from Bach to Britten.
Our musical season starts in September and ends in April / May, and we normally give two concerts a year with professional soloists and musicians.
BECOME A FRIEND
Berwick Arts Choir relies on the support of its Friends to secure top-quality soloists and musicians for every concert, in turn securing the Choir's reputation.

WHAT THE CHOIR MEANS TO OUR MEMBERS
Choral singing is both healing and life-affirming, which is why I look forward to my weekly dose of Berwick Arts Choir.
It is here that I find good music which, on occasion, challenges me in a good way, as well as friendship in the company of like-minded people.
As a newcomer to the choir (and to Berwick) I was made very welcome and given the help I needed to feel confident in singing with a choir again for the first time in many years.
The conductor has a nice way of encouraging us to achieve the best of which we are capable.
Choral singing gives immense exhilaration and satisfaction. In my 50+ years of membership of BAC I have learned much beautiful music, met many nice people, and made some very good friends.
Newcomers are warmly welcomed.
