Welcome back to Chris Milton
Chris Milton back at rehearsals
Chris returns to the tenor section after a 7 year gap.
Although thoroughly enjoying being a member of the choir from 2006 to 2012 the demands of international travel for his work made it impossible to continue. Now, as a self-employed management and communications consultant, seeking a better work-life balance, he’s jumped at the chance to rejoin
" I am delighted to have rejoined the choir. Although I wouldn’t class myself particularly as a musician, I have always enjoyed the discipline, the breadth of the repertoire, and the standard of the singing with the Birmingham Bach Choir – satisfyingly challenging and sometimes even daunting, but it is always clear that the choir’s members are gifted amateurs rather than professionals, and very friendly!” (Chris Milton)
