Oxford’s premier mixed voice choir

Online Concert from the Sheldonian Theatre now available!

Our concert of French choral music from the Sheldonian Theatre on Sunday 19th September can be accessed free at www.positivenote.co.uk/oxford-bach-choir

Oxford Bach Choir was conducted by Benjamin Nicholas, and Robert Quinney was the organist.  Rebecca McNaught (cello), Lila Chrisp (mezzo) and Ben Davies (bass) were soloists in Duruflé’s, Requiem.

The performance raised money for Oxford Hospitals Trust.  Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/oxford-bach-choir

Open rehearsals announced for the Oxford Bach Choir

Auditions for the choir will continue into the first half of October – see Join the Choir (below). If you are interested in joining but would like to give us a try first, why not come along to one of our 2 open rehearsals? We will be singing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and scores are available to borrow. It’s a great way to get a feel for the Choir and to meet the conductor and choir members.  Rehearsals run 7.30 to 9.30pm, but come from 7.00pm onwards as these tend to be busy events.

Monday 4th October – Oxford University Catholic Chaplaincy, The Old Palace, 85-87 St Aldate’s, Oxford OX1 1RD (off Rose Place).

Monday 11th October – St Peter’s College Chapel, New Inn Hall Street, OX1 2DL

At these open rehearsals we will have some COVID mitigations in place, such as wearing masks on arrival and spaced seating. If you can take a lateral flow test before you come, all the better.

Contact Pia, on membership@oxfordbachchoir.org, for further information and to let us know you are coming.
