Founded in 2009, Gurt Lush Choir quickly grew to be one of the largest and most remarkable open-access choirs in the country. Many know us as the Mighty Lush.
We sing all styles of a cappella music and perform regularly in Bristol's finest venues. We love collaborating and are proud to have worked with Bristol Schools Philharmonia, Andy Sheppard, Sam Lee, Project Zulu, Opera Anywhere, The Fantasy Orchestra, The Gypsy Stars, Russian vocal ensemble Lyra, brass bands and many more. From rugby matches to the docks to churches to underground tunnels, if we can make a noise in it, we probably will - and we sound amazing.
We love to be bold and we're never afraid to try new and ambitious material, particularly by local composers. We regularly busk the streets of this wonderful city, carol singing or charity performances, as well as the occasional theatre or live art shows.
Our aim is to achieve the eclectic mix of a community choir, but with the more ambitious harmony and vocal technique of a good choral society. You're never on your own with what you're learning - all new music is supported by voice part-specific CD or download. No problem at all if you can't read music.
We're big, but we've got room for more and newcomers get a really warm welcome. There's no audition and you have three free taster sessions.
We work really hard and we have loads of fun.
Try us. We're nice! :)
