Our community work
We are passionate about singing and wish to create opportunities for all to sing!
In December each year, we perform our Carols for All concert in partnership with the Oxfordshire County Music Service which provides a children’s choir, a youth choir and a youth brass ensemble. This offers children and young people the opportunity to work the Oxford Bach Choir; and the concert attracts different audiences (including parents and carers) who might not normally attend our concerts. In recent years this concert has been recorded by BBC Radio Oxford and broadcast at Christmas.
In 2020 we have started a new outreach programme which aims to develop school age children’s skills, confidence and enjoyment of singing – with a particular focus on children who would not otherwise sing. The programme has been designed in close collaboration with Oxfordshire County Music Service.
This work will be led and developed by a professional Choral Animateur working with children in Year 7 at the Aureus School, Didcot. It is planned the work will culminate in an end of season concert in partnership with Oxford Bach Choir.
We envisage the growth and development of this programme in future years, and we will be launching a fundraising campaign to enable this to happen.
