Story by Dili Utomi.
The Bishop Ajayi Crowther Memorial Anglican Church (BACMAC) Choir is the leading orthodox and one of the leading choirs in Nigeria. Hence it is a tradition to conduct auditions for new members once every 3 years and for old members to renew their membership as well.
The current numerical strength of the choir is over a 100. The structural organisation of the choir comprises of the Vicar, Music Director and organist as the management team, the Media Director, Treasurer, Financial Secretary, Wardens, Welfare officers, PRO and part leaders as the executive arm of the choir and camera men and internal press members as the crew members, then the choristers of the choir.
Ven. Taiwo Olupitan, Vicar, BACMAC.
The choir sings and performs different genres of music, both classical and contemporary. The choirs orchestra band is arguably the best in Lagos and maybe one of the best in Nigeria. The choir is a singing group where love radiates, the choir is one big family. The choir receives different forms of gifts and recognitions. Only recently the choir was gifted with the sum of five million naira during her last Easter concert.
With great thanks to the visioner and the father and mother of the choir and Diocese, The Rt Rev Dr James Olusola and Mrs Lydia Odedeji who has pledged and are faithful to their love and support for the choir, hence the choir has it as a tradition to appreciate them every Easter in a grand concert and also to the vicar and leader of the choir Ven Taiwo Olupitan who gives all kinds of great support towards the growth and success of the choir.
