Welcome

The Nottingham Bach Choir  was formed in 1954 and has been making a major contribution to the musical life of Nottingham since then. Most of our concerts are held in St Mary's Church, but we also perform regularly in Southwell Minster. There are approximately 100 members who rehearse weekly under our  inspirational Director of Music, Paul Hale. The choir gives high quality performances and is renowned for its sensitive and expressive interpretations of a wide range of choral music, in particular the works of Bach.

Nottingham Bach Choir is an auditioned choir rehearsing on Tuesdays at St John's Church, Carrington, and performs three concerts a year. It also performs a popular Christmas Concert each year at St. Peter's Church, Nottingham as part of their Coffee Morning series.

Although the works of J.S. Bach are central to our repertoire, we regularly perform choral music ranging from the late Renaissance era to the modern day. Outstanding reviews are regularly received for our concerts, most recently for a performance of J.S. Bach's St John Passion at Easter 2018. Amongst our recent seasons, we celebrated 60 years with a magnificent performance of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius in Southwell Minster, and this year have just performed Rossini's Petite Messe Solonnelle which was a joyous end to a wonderful season of music making
