Bristol Bach Choir, directed by Christopher Finch, is one of the South West’s finest choral groups. Since its formation in 1967 the choir has gained a reputation for its dynamic, expressive singing and its vibrant performances.

Its repertoire ranges from early Baroque music to 21st century compositions by James MacMillan, Arvo Pärt, Knut Nystedt, Cecilia McDowell and Will Todd. This versatility, and the choir’s size, mean that larger choral works and more intimate chamber choir pieces are performed with equal success.

The choir regularly appears alongside the country’s most respected professional soloists and orchestras and also engages exceptionally talented young musicians on the verge of major international careers.

Christopher Finch, acknowledged as one of the UK’s new generation of outstanding choral conductors and vocal coaches, was appointed as the choir’s Music Director in 2012.

Tours are a regular part of the choir’s activities with performances in Spain, France, Germany, Portugal, Iceland, the Czech Republic, Italy and Estonia.

A smaller group of singers can be hired to perform at weddings and other events. For more information go to Hire us
