Who are we?

The Brixi Singers are a small chamber choir of 20-22 voices,  based in Bolton,  in the northwest of England. We perform 5-6 concerts per year,  including both sacred and secular repertoire.  Our concerts can be light and include songs from shows,  or can consist of a single piece,  such as Handel's "Messiah",  or Karl Jenkins' "The Armed Man". As well as arranging our own concerts,  we are also available for hire for weddings,  fund-raising concerts,  and other events.

Why "Brixi"? 

Franz Xaver Brixi was an 18th century Czech composer and his 'Veni Sancte Spiritus' was the first choral work sung by a group of dedicated musicians from the Bolton area eager to form a chamber choir back in May 1994. The choir needing a name, selected Brixi's.  The work was performed at the choir's inaugural concert in St. Lawrence's Church, Appleby, along with works spanning four centuries by Bliss, Bruckner, Ireland, Lloyd-Webber, Morley, Mozart, Puccini, Rutter, Schubert, Stanford, Sullivan and Tallis.

Since then concerts have been given not only in and around the Bolton area but in places as diverse as Lincoln, Nelson, Wigan, Hawkshead; Rennes and Rouen in France; Prague and Marianske Lasne in the Czech Republic; Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, Ypres in Belgium; and in 2014 touring the Rhineland and giving 4 concerts around Rudesheim
