Choral Workshop 2015 – Bach’s St Matthew Passion

Saturday 24 January 2015   9.30am – 5pm   St Michael’s Without, Bath

Founded in 1946 to study the major choral works of J S Bach, City of Bath Bach Choir regularly performs his three masterpieces with a baroque orchestra in Bath Abbey.

In March 2015 it is the turn of the St Matthew Passion. So,for our very popular Choral Workshop on Saturday 24 January, Nigel Perrin led us through this epic and moving piece of music theatre, unravelling Bach’s challenging vocal score and encouraging us to become the vicious mob that incited the crucifixion of Jesus.

The day culminated in an abridged, chorus-only performance of Bach’s powerful score.

Open rehearsal

Monday 2 February 2015   7.15 – 9.30pm   Junior School Hall, King Edward’s School, Bath

From time to time the CBBC holds an open singing evening, usually on a regular rehearsal night, to which everyone is invited. Come and sing with us for an hour or so, and then join us for an informal buffet supper. It’s a great way to find out first-hand what we get up to – and you might feel inspired to take the next step to join us.

A recent guest wrote back to us:
“It was your website that led me to the open evening of the Bath Bach Choir. The photos made the choir gatherings look relaxed, and the text was very welcoming. The idea of an invitation to an open evening was brilliant – very unthreatening, inclusive and not at all scary”.
