“David gives us so much more knowledge about a work we thought we already knew”
As a Choir that has been singing together for over 140 years, we’re passionate about inviting choral singers of all backgrounds to participate and share the joy of singing great choral music with us.
For decades The Bach Choir has been offering ‘Come and Sing’ days in London led by David Hill, Musical Director. Members of choirs from across the UK – and even further afield – have joined us to practise renowned choral works from Bach to Rutter, Elgar to Mendelssohn, and then finish the day with a scratch performance for friends and family.
“It never ceases to amaze me how much information David Hill is able to impart”
Through lockdown we found a new online format which has widened participation to choral singers around the world. Each month in these free choral workshops, David gave guidance and led vocal warm-ups, before singers had the opportunity to join in with a recording of the work from their own home.
We intend to continue these online workshops in the future and share the passion for choral singing worldwide.
“Thank you all so much for what was without doubt my best musical experience of the COVID era”
These online events are on a ‘pay what you can’ basis – they are free of charge, with the opportunity to make a small donation to help us fund these workshops in the future as well as our other community participation activities. To join you must register beforehand.
