About us

The Bedford Modern Singers is a community choir who's members consists of parents, friends, staff and former pupils of Bedford Modern School. The choir was formerly known as the Modernians and has been running for more than 25 years. The choir performs a mixed repertoire of many different genres, such as classical, folk, show tunes and more popular songs. The choir takes part each year in the  Bedfordshire Festival of Music, Speech and Drama as well as concerts at Christmas and Summer. In 2017 the choir undertook a change as long time choir mistress Emily Hall moved to Dubai and Kate Leigh, formerly our accompanist, has taken up the baton to lead the choir and expand it's repertoire.

If you are someone who has current or former links with the school and would be interested in joining the choir, you would be very welcome to join us in our rehearsals in the Bedford Modern School Music Department on Wednesdsay evenings from 7:30 to 9pm. No previous experience is necessary and you don't have to be able to read music. The informal atmosphere provides the perfect opportunity to meet friends old and new and rehearse with a view to performing on a stage in due course!
