Celebrating the choral tradition since 1960

Music Director: Tim Horton


Founded in 1960 and one of the most prestigious and longest-established large classical choral societies in the South East, the Croydon Bach Choir truly embodies the spirit of musical excellence and a deep love for the choral art form. Our ensemble is comprised of dedicated singers who share a passion for choral music and strive to achieve the highest levels of performance. Under the direction of our talented Music Director, Tim Horton, we tackle a diverse range of choral repertoire. For our concerts we always engage professional soloists and musicians. We are a registered charity, a member of Making Music and the National Association of Choirs, 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 choir that values high standards and takes pride in creating beautiful music with friendly, like-minded people who share your passion for music, then we welcome you to join us and experience the joy of making music together. Come to our next open rehearsal and see for yourself why the Croydon Bach Choir stands out among the rest!

Our next open rehearsal for prospective new members will be on Wednesday 25th September 2024 at 7:30 pm.

Spring Concert Review

"The Croydon Bach Choir delivered an impressive performance of Mozart's Coronation Mass and Haydn's Nelson Mass, under the direction of Tim Horton and accompanied by William Munks at an impeccably well organised concert at St Matthew's Church in Croydon. The choir's rich harmonies and dynamic expression brought these classic works to life with a vibrant energy that captivated the audience. The soloists, Belinda Evans, Vanessa Heine, Adam Tunnicliffe and Peter Brookes, demonstrated their remarkable vocal abilities with stunning solos and a trio that showcased their versatility and range. Their performances added an extra layer of depth to the concert and were a true highlight of the evening. Overall, the Croydon Bach Choir's performance was a masterful display of musical talent and passion. Their dedication to their craft was evident in every note, and the audience was left feeling inspired and uplifted. This concert was a true testament to the power of music and the talent of the Croydon Bach Choir."
