The City of Bath Bach Choir was formed in 1946, and while the music of Bach forms a significant part of our repertoire, we also perform works from a wide variety of periods and styles – ancient and modern, sacred and secular. Since 1990 the internationally renowned and inspirational Nigel Perrin, has been our Musical Director. Please explore the website to find out more about us, the type of music we have performed in the past and plan to sing, where you can hear us and maybe even apply to join us.
