Birmingham Bach Choir is a leading large chamber choir.
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, celebrating 100 years in 2019.
We perform a rather different repertoire from the other choirs in the region with hugely varied music spanning six centuries, often a cappella or accompanied by a single instrument or a baroque style orchestra
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). In 2020 we will perform Rachmaninov’s Liturgy of John Chrysostom.
Concert venues for our 2019-20 season include: Lichfield Cathedral, St Philip’s Cathedral (Birmingham) and St Chad’s Cathedral (Birmingham) as well as Great Malvern Priory.
