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.
The East Sussex Bach Choir is pleased to announce the programme of concerts for next season.
The Choir will travel to Germany in December to perform Bach's "Christmas Oratorio" with Kantorei Hochrhein in Waldshut. The Bach Choir will then perform the Bach on 7th January at Lewes Town Hall. Tickets are available now through the link on the right of this page.
Saturday 25th March will see the choir performing Brahm's Requiem & short anthems by Bach, Mozart, Bruckner, at St Michael's Church, Lewes.
The summer performance will be Purcell's "King Arthur" Saturday 10th June at Lewes Town Hall.
East Sussex Bach Choir is seeking new members. Strong singers in all voice parts, particularly tenors and basses, will be considered. We have an active policy of developing talent within our group. If you would like to be part of this process please get in touch.
We are particularly keen in recruiting young talent and fund places through bursary schemes.
