Music Director: Tim Horton
Founded in 1960, Croydon Bach Choir is one of the most prestigious and longest-established large classical choral societies in the South East, with adult members of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds. Each season we perform a number of high-quality concerts in Croydon, including works by Bach but also a diverse range of other choral repertoire, generally engaging professional soloists and orchestras. We are a registered charity, a member of Making Music, and are supported financially by the Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust. We also welcome support from local business, either for a season or for individual concerts. If you are considering joining a superb choir in South London, are a confident and competent singer and enjoy the company of friendly like-minded people who share your passion for music, then you will find singing with the Croydon Bach Choir a hugely enjoyable and rewarding experience.
Our Concert on 25th March 2023
Thank you to everybody who attended or took part in our fabulous performance of Handel's Samson on 25th March 2023. As always, we had a full and wonderfully appreciative audience. This is just one of the many messages we received: "The standard was so high. A phenomenal amount of work must have gone in to rehearsing the work. It is an evening I shall always remember." Huge thanks to our incredible soloists, Jenni Harper (soprano), Vanessa Heine (mezzo-soprano), Rory Carver (tenor) and Peter Brooke (bass), members of the Croydon Bach Orchestra and, of course, our masterful music director, Tim Horton, at the helm as well as William Munks, our regular rehearsal accompanist who played continuo at the concert. After a well-earned break for Easter, we'll be returning in April to start rehearsals for Brahms' Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) and Alt Rhapsodie (Alto Rhapsody), as well as Mozart's Missa Solemnis (Solemn Mass), which we'll be performing on 1st July 2023. Our concerts are regularly sold out so do buy your tickets in good time!
We are very grateful to the Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust for their continued support.
