People of Note is one of Bristol’s longest standing community choirs. The choir was set up in 2000 by Nickomo Clarke and Nick Petts, and run by Nickomo and Rasullah from 2009-2020. 

After several years without a leader, in early 2022 the choir appointed wonderful new leader, Rosie Sleightholme. Rosie is a Natural Voice choir leader and has loved bringing this wonderful group back together after a few years of not singing, and welcoming lots of new members to the choir.

Since Rosie took over, People of Note has done some great performances, including three at St George’s concert hall (South West Community Choirs Convention 2022 and 2023, and Singing City 2022), Bristol Harbour Festival 2022, Bristol Beacon’s Festival of Voice 2023, and Treefest at St Mary Redcliffe (2022 and 2023). We’ve also sung at lovely local community events including Windmill Hill City Farm market, and have done two wonderful Christmas concerts (2022 and 2023) raising money for local charities. If you’re in the choir there’s no obligation to perform, although most people choose to as our performances are always at lovely events and are lots of fun!

All songs are taught by ear and there is no need to read music. We sing songs from all over the world, and Rosie’s main aim is to bring people together to experience the joy of singing in harmony.
