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 is regretfully
postponing all concerts planned over the next three months in response to the current health situation. The performances affected are "Dream of Gerontius" on 21st March, the Lenten Meditations on 5th and 10th of April and the Mozart/Haydn concert on 23rd May. We hope that we may be able to rearrange these concerts in the future and will post further information on this website as soon as possible.
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.
