& Operatic Society
BCOS is a performing musical society with a difference: we rehearse and present works from both the choral and staged musical/operetta disciplines, performing a major choral work and a staged musical production at opposite ends of the year. Alongside these major productions, where time permits, we also present either a summer or Christmas concert.
It's been a challenging couple of years. Covid put pay to our 2020 plans, but we have been so pleased to have been able to bring you THREE events in 2021. The Mikado, and Thank You for The Music both were resounding successes and couldn't have happened with out the assistance of the team at Bicester Heritage. And, most recently, the sold out A Night At The Opera saw us back in our 'home' venue of St Edburg's Church. Unfortunately Christmas was cancelled again but, we did get together and enjoy our singing in the run up to the cancelled event.
We're currently working towards our 2022 stage show - Little Shop of Horrors
Our concerts are normally presented in St Edburg's Church and the staged production in The Cooper School, Bicester. We meet on Wednesday nights in St Mary’s School, Queen’s Avenue, Bicester, from 7:30pm-9:30pm for choral concerts and 7:30pm-10.00pm for staged works. Whether you sing, act, paint, sew, or build scenery, you will be most welcome as a member!
