Saturday 23 January 9.30am – 5pm
Bath Bach Choir’s annual workshop is a feast of singing and socialising to brighten a January day. The choir warmly welcomes anyone to sign up and come along to St Michael’s Without in Bath, our regular workshop venue.
Directed by Nigel Perrin, the day is divided into four entertaining sessions to explore a major choral work, with the final session a sing-through of the piece. Guests sing alongside choir members and mingle together during the coffee, lunch and tea breaks.

Our next workshop will study Puccini’s Messa di Gloria and Italian-style refreshments will be served, to help us channel the exciting Italian spirit of the piece.
One of last year’s participants said this:
“We travelled all the way from Geneva to attend the Bath Bach Choir’s
workshop of the St Matthew Passion. We are thrilled that we did! It
was an incredible day of beautiful singing led by the amazing Nigel
Perrin in the gorgeous city of Bath. An unforgettable experience and
highly recommended. We hope to join you next year for Puccini.” (C Bonnet and D Cheong)

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”.
