Derby Bach Choir members will know that Sheila Heathcote died in June, having been a loyal choir member for many decades and known to many in the Derby musical community - rehearsing with us and the Sitwell Singers until only a few days before her final illness. Many Bach Choir members were able to attend her funeral and celebration of her life. If you would like to donate in her memory, here is the link (in support of Macmillan and Cancer Research).


The choir is now on holiday, but gearing up for our 2024-25 season, with events at our usual fabulous venues Derby Cathedral, St John's and Ticknall Parish Church, with another great line-up of professional soloists and musicians. We've also planned in two Come and Sing events in November and May - Mozart Requiem as well as Vivaldi Gloria and Handel Coronation Anthems.

New and returning members are welcome for next year - a chance to sing Mozart's Mass in C Minor, Haydn and Kodàly. To continue performing great pieces we are recruiting now, in Bass and Tenor sections especially. To find out more about singing with us click here. Come along to a concert or the next Come and Sing and hear what we do!

We are Derby Bach Choir - a leading choir in the East Midlands with a core membership of around 90 singers. We perform at least 3 concerts every season with a varied repertoire and also host Come and Sing events, open to all. Now in our 66th Season - come and join us in celebrating the greatest choral music.

Our Season Brochure to help you plan for 2024/2025 is here. Tickets will be available soon on the relevant concert pages, as well as through Derby Live.
