A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

Bristol Fashion Chorus is an award winning ladies' chorus which strives for musical excellence in 4 part A-Capella singing. We sing
primarily in the traditional barbershop style and aim to encourage and develop the style through our chorus, quartets
and small group performances.
Bristol Fashion Chorus will aim to perform and compete at the highest level in the Bristol area and within the Ladies Association
of British Barbershop Singers, in order to continually improve our vocal and performance quality.
Our mission is to educate, support and enrich the lives of our diverse membership and share the gift of music with our audiences
through a unique blend of close harmonies and close friendships.

We all love singing! We rehearse every Thursday evening in South Bristol,
when we work hard at improving our craft and performances under the leadership of our talented Musical Director Craig Kehoe.
We are members of the Ladies’ Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS)
which organises the annual Convention where choruses from all over the country meet and compete. Through membership of
LABBS we are part of a huge ‘sisterhood’ of Barbershop singers numbering over 2000.
If you'd like to know more, please contact us and send us your details. We'd love to hear from you!
Each year our Chairlady chooses a charity to support and we hold special events to raise money for this. Over the past few years we have made
donations to 'Music Space' (towards new instruments), Macmillan Cancer Support,
RP Fighting Blindness, Cancer Research UK and Yate Opportunity Group. For 2013 Helen has chosen Above and Beyond, raising money for Bristol's hospitals, as her charity.
