Festival of Voice - Rising Voices, The Chandeliers and Bristol Rock Choir
Experience and support fantastic local choirs in Bridgehouse as part of the Festival of Voice.
One of a series of Festival of Voice concerts in our foyer space, Bridgehouse, will showcase the best of Bristol’s choirs, featuring:
Rising Voices Recovery Choir
As part of Bristol Drugs Project, Rising Voices Recovery Choir have been running since 2014 and regularly perform at recovery and public events all over Bristol. Their fun and free weekly singing group is for anyone affected by problematic drug or alcohol use – people in recovery or working towards recovery, their families and carers, and those who work or volunteer in treatment services.
Seamlessly blended voices, and intricately layered arrangements, The Chandeliers are serving up songs old and new with a fresh twist, and more than a hint of sparkle!
Bristol Rock Choir
Rock Choir was created by singer and musician, Caroline Redman Lusher and remains a family-run organisation originating in Farnham, Surrey in 2005. She initiated a brand new, accessible and glamorous approach to contemporary community singing which grew quickly and dramatically from humble beginnings into what it is today.

The Festival of Voice is St George’s Bristol’s month-long celebration of the power, beauty and universality of the human voice. Bringing together internationally renowned artists with grass-roots choirs anchored in their local communities, and everything in between. We’re exploring what the voice can do and a celebration of what singing can help us all be and achieve, creating something together to enjoy. Everyone is welcome to come along and take part!
Singing is like a celebration of oxygen”
