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 were thrilled that our performances of an all-Mozart programme, including the Requiem, on Saturday 30 October were rapturously received by capacity audiences at Lewes Town Hall.

Future concerts include:

2 concerts of Christmas music on 19th December at St Michael's Church, Lewes, in aid of the church. Details are on the right hand column of this page together with links for ticket sales


Saturday 8 January 2022 at Lewes Town Hall a performance of Handel's Messiah.  Details are on the right hand column of this page. Tickets are now available through the link

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.
