The Birmingham Bach Choir is a leading large chamber choir and one of the City’s oldest and most distinguished musical groups. It predates both the City of Birmingham Symphony Chorus and the City of Birmingham Choir, performing a rather different and very varied repertoire of music spanning six centuries.
We exist to give inspiring live performances to a professional standard of not only well loved pieces but often introducing our audiences to music they have not heard before e.g. the MacMillan's Seven Last Words (2010), Paul Spicer’s new choral symphony Unfinished Remembering (2015), a concert of Russian Orthodox music (2016) and the first performance in the West Midlands of J S Bach’s St Mark Passion (2017). 2019 we will celebrate 100yrs since our foundation with a series of special concerts & events to be announced.
Although this season we are singing mostly in the major concert venues of central Birmingham, we regularly explore new venues further afield such as Lichfield, Tewkesbury, Evesham & Pershore.
