We are East Sussex Bach Choir. Our aim is to perform a varied repertoire of baroque and renaissance works to a very high standard. We engage professional soloists and high-quality period players to bring experience and excellence to our performances. We follow the practice of ‘historically informed performance’, getting as close as possible to the composer’s original intention. While the choir’s repertoire certainly includes the works of JS Bach, it is by no means limited to these.

We aim to benefit our members and the wider community through the performance of a varied repertoire, principally baroque, to a very high standard.

We aim to develop and improve our singing talent and enjoy the singing experience. 

We firmly believe that reward and effort go hand in hand. This is never truer than in choral singing.  Our standards and expectations in this respect are high.


East Sussex Bach Choir is pleased to announce that it is now able to return to socially distanced rehearsals, having rehearsed online over the past few months, during the current health situation. ESBC is also pleased to announce the appointment of Adam LeClercq as rehearsal accompanist.
