Sheffield Bach Choir – the choir of the Sheffield Bach Society

We greatly regret that the Coronavirus pandemic and associated Government and other guidelines, brought about the cancellation of the final concert of the 2019-20 season in June 2020.

Arrangements for rehearsals and concerts for the period October 2020 to February 2021 and beyond are under consideration currently, and it is hoped that a further announcement will be forthcoming in Autumn/Early Winter, 2020.

Formed in 1950, Sheffield Bach Choir, one of the longest-established choirs in a city profoundly rich in terms of cultural heritage, was founded to revive public interest in the music of Bach.

Each year we perform at least one major Bach choral work, presenting his three great works the B Minor Mass and the St Matthew and St John Passions in a three-year rotation, along with Handel’s Messiah in December. In addition, each season sees a minimum of three further concerts of diverse classical repertoire. Most of our concerts are held in Sheffield’s Anglican Cathedral; the June concert is usually at St Mark’s in Broomhill.

The current season’s programme and a concert brochure are available at this link.
