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.
Our wonderful concert in Lewes on Saturday 25th March was sold out before the day! If you were not able to attend this concert, or would like to hear a repeat performance of the Brahms, why not come to hear the choir perform "Ein Deutsches Requiem" in the beautiful setting of St Andrew's Church, Alfriston on Sunday 30th April at 2.30pm. Tickets are now available only from this website.
Do look at our new Programme Notes page, where we are excited to display excellent notes by Richard Wigmore, the well-known BBC R3 presenter.
Our Summer performance will be Purcell's "King Arthur" on Saturday 10th June at Lewes Town Hall.
East Sussex Bach Choir now has its own youtube channel! You can see interviews & musical clips including from our recent tour to Waldshut & rehearsals for Brahms Requiem at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgi6LjplkHl-ZwRrJtx-sKg
