BBC Singers (professional chamber choir of the BBC)

~ Choir


Be careful to disambiguate from the BBC Symphony Chorus, both have used the name BBC Chorus at different periods of their histories.
"Wireless Singers" was the name of an octet subset formed in 1927 from members of the Wireless Chorus, so it existed contemporaneously with the larger chorus group until 1934. when the group was renamed the BBC Singers in 1934, it was reorganized into two octets known as Singers A and Singers B, differentiated by their repertoire.
