Saturday 3rd December 2022 saw the choir performing Part 1 of Handel's "Messiah" to a very appreciative audience at St Paul's Church, Astley Bridge, in Bolton. Richard Lea conducted from the piano,  and all soloists were drawn from the choir. and what a talented lot they are! Just amazing!The first half finished with a very rousing rendition of the "Hallelujah" chorus.  Then came an interval, with wine and soft drinks to refresh the audience,  before we settled down to the second half,  a mixture of choir Christmas  pieces and congregational carols. All in all, a welcome start to the festive season.

Saturday 15th October 2022 at St Brendan's Church in Harwood saw The Brixi Singers perform "Autumn Reflections", showcasing music in a range of styles and eras. Mozart's Regina Coeli,  and Laudate Dominum wowed the audience,  as did Palestrina's Exultate Deo, and Viadana's Exultate Justi. Moving into the last century,  the programme included Autumn Leaves (obviously!),  Lullaby of Birdland, and I dream of Jeannie,  amng others. Julie Leach amazed all with flute solos in each half,  and the concert finished with a rousing medley of well know songs from the musical, Showboat.  .
