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 has continued to rehearse online throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. However, we were excited to perform our first concerts with live audiences on 11th July, which were both very well received. Music performed was by Vivaldi and Handel.
Our next concert will be on Saturday 30th October 2021 at Lewes Town Hall, when we will be performing Mozart's Requiem & Haydn's Maria Theresa Mass. Further details about this concert, including how to buy tickets, will appear soon in the column at the right hand side of this page.
Future plans include a performance of Handel's Messiah in January 2022.
If you would like to be notified of all our future events & plans, please add your details to our emailing list link above.
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.
