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.



We celebrated the New Year with an outstanding performance of Handel's Messiah on Saturday 8 January at Lewes Town Hall. 

Our next performance will be on 

Saturday 16 April 2022 at Lewes Town Hall, when the

concert will include Vivaldi's Gloria


On Saturday 28 May 2022 we will be giving a concert of music by Haydn & Mozart at Lewes Town Hall. We are pleased to announce that for this performance East Sussex Bach Choir will be joined by Kantorei Hochrhein from Waldshut in an event supported by the Mayor of Lewes.

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.
