Celebrating the choral tradition since 1960

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.

Christmas Roundup


Spectacular concert with the London Mozart Players, also joined by the strings of Cypress Junior School at St John the Evangelist, Upper Norwood

Thank you to everybody who attended or took part in our whirlwind of Christmas events. We had a very busy few weeks of rehearsals between September and December. This came to fruition at a magnificent concert, where we sang both Fauré's sublime Requiem as well as Poulenc's heart-stoppingly beautiful Gloria. We performed to a full and very appreciative audience, whom even the unfortunate clash of dates with England's match against France couldn't keep away. Huge thanks to Belinda Evans and Richard Collier our fabulous soloists, William Munks our amazing pianist and, of course, our masterful music director, Tim Horton, at the helm. Thanks also to our team who skillfully prepared and served lavish festive refreshments in the interval to such a vast number of people. The previous evening we'd been hugely honoured to have been invited by our friends, the London Mozart Players, to join them for their spectacular Christmas concert at St John the Evangelist in Upper Norwood. We've also managed to squeeze in a few visits to local care homes to perform for the most delightful and welcoming residents. Finally, on 14th December 2022 we had time to let our hair down and enjoy a wonderful Christmas party for our members and guests at the superb Croham Hurst Golf Club. After a well-earned break for Christmas and the New Year, we'll be returning in January to start rehearsals for Handel's stunning oratorio, Samson, which we'll be performing on 25th March 2023. Our concerts are regularly sold out so do buy your tickets in good time!
