  • Mission statement

    Birmingham Bach Choir has been making a major contribution to the cultural life of the City and the region for over 90 years. We give concerts in venues across the Midlands and sing classical music from all centuries but specialise in Baroque and 20th century music. Our mission is to develop our expertise and repertoire to give performances of the highest quality and to bring the thrill of choral music to as wide an audience as possible

    We give 3 major concerts each year. One is usually orchestral, with professional musicians. This is costly but greatly enhances the quality of our performances so that our remaining concerts are a capella or with organ. We perform across the West Midlands and have sung in Germany and Italy.

  • Aims

    • Excellence To develop individual and collective expertise in chorla singing in order to give performances of the highest quality, with professional soloists and orchestras.

    • Development and innovation To encourage young musicians by offering solo work nad choral experience. To extend our repertoire and commission new works.
