City of Bristol Choir was founded in 1991, and appointed David Ogden as Music Director in 2000.

Under David's direction the choir enjoys a busy schedule of concerts and events.

The choir is made up of 100 auditioned adult singers, rehearing regularly throughout the year and giving four or five concerts annually in Bristol and around the South West. Recent seasons have included performances of Walton's Belshazzar's Feast, Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 with His Majesty's Sagbutts and Cornetts, Britten's War Requiem, Symanowski's Stabat Mater, Brahms' Requiem, Fanshawe's African Sanctus, Mozart's Requiem and Mass in C Minor and the first performance in Bristol of Howells' Hymnus Paradisi

In 2007 the choir staged an Elgar Festival which included a performance of all three of Elgar's oratorios including The Dream of Gerontius with City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. City of Bristol Choir has appeared on BBC television's Songs of Praise and BBC Radio 2's Sunday Half Hour. The choir has toured Germany, Spain, Portugal and Italy.
