BBC Symphony Chorus
For the last 3 years I have worked as a part time freelance administrator for the BBC Symphony Chorus, a role that has increased my passion for choral works as well as my love of the BBC Proms.
This video of the BBC Symphony Chorus was shot at the BBC's Maida Vale Studios before the Proms 2015 season began.
There was just one camera man, a very animated communications manager and me. We filmed it across two rehearsals, getting footage of the Chorus in the studio and then doing the interviews at speed across the 20 minute tea breaks.
Listening to the interviews in full I felt so proud to work for the BBC Symphony Chorus. Everybody talked about the excitement of their shows, the professionalism of what they are expected to achieve and the warmth of the people in the Chorus. The Chorus has such a high standard and if you are looking to join an outstanding amateur choir I would wholeheartedly recommend you audition.
I have been so happy to plan their concerts at the BBC Proms and the Barbican and to sit in on their rehearsals and broadcasts.
