Formed in 1950, Sheffield Bach Choir, one of the longest-established choirs in a city profoundly rich in terms of cultural heritage was founded to revive public interest in the music of Bach.
Following Mendelssohn’s magnificent Elijah on Saturday 4 March 2017, the Choir presents Come Sing Messiah with Dr Denis Wright’s brass band accompaniment on Saturday 8 April. Full details of both these major events in the gloriously refurbished Sheffield Cathedral are available here.
Each year we perform at least one major Bach choral work, along with Handel’s Messiah in December and, in addition, each season sees a minimum of three further concerts of diverse classical repertoire. Our concerts are held in Sheffield Cathedral, St Mark’s in Broomhill and occasionally we present at least one major Bach choral work, along with Handel’s Messiah in December and, in addition, each season sees a minimum of three further concerts of diverse classical repertoire.
