Biography
Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra (BHCO) was formed in 1987 by four Bristol-based musicians who wanted to establish an amateur orchestra capable of achieving the highest possible standards. The Greater Bristol area covers a large population, and the city and surrounding geographical beauty attract a wide number of people in all walks of life. The rationale to finding the route to success was multi-pronged : engage the services of a conductor who would be inspiring (making rehearsal and concerts both rewarding musically and pleasurable); discover the best musicians in the area who were prepared to commit time and effort into practice and performance for no financial return; play in the wonderful acoustic of St George’s, Brandon Hill, Bristol (for many years used by the BBC as a recording studio); rehearse intensively over the period immediately preceding the concert; and to promote high-quality events of varied and interesting content to be able to reward audiences, conductors, soloists and orchestra together.
