Windmill Hill Chorus was formed at Art on the Hill 2009 with Handel's Messiah in response to the musical and artistic talents of the local community - and the 2009 international Handel Anniversary Year. The Chorus has since performed at AOTH - Mozart's Requiem in 2010 and Haydn's Creation in 2011- as well as singing Vivaldi and other works in between times. They have performed at the Trail with Bristol Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Mark Randall - resident organist at St Michael's, aka one fifth of a jazz quintet, pianist, and conductor of choirs and orchestras beyond local bounds - and to the accompaniment of artists' works. // JL 2012
