About the event
Bedford Gallery Quire is a community group of singers and instrumentalists performing three and four part musical pieces from the West Gallery period, around 1700 to 1850. Following a workshop singing day in 2003 given by founder, Ken Baddley, enthusiastic participants were keen to continue and Bedford Gallery Quire was born.
In the conventional voice parts of Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass with instruments doubling the vocal lines, we perform in Bedfordshire and the neighbouring counties in costume representing what might have been worn by our counterparts in Bedford around 1810—1830. We have no religious affiliation and members are of all faiths and none..
Doors open at 19:00 with the concert starting at 19:30, there will be two 35 minute halves with an interval, finishing at approximately 21:15.
Seats are not numbered so you are free to sit wherever you like.
The Arts Cafe will be open all evening.
