About The Bach Choir

Founded in 1876, The Bach Choir is recognised as one of the world’s leading choruses, building upon a tradition that combines musical excellence with creativity and innovation. From the first performance in Britain of Bach’s Mass in B minor to the soundtrack for the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game, our musical heritage is as rich as it is diverse. Directed by David Hill MBE, one of the country’s most eminent conductors, we regularly perform and record across London and the UK in prestigious venues, from the Southbank Centre and Royal Albert Hall to Abbey Road Studios.

The Choir’s mission is to inspire and connect people with the emotional power of choral music through performances, recordings and community engagement projects. Through lockdown the choir has explored more use of digital channels and commissioned new music.  We are now looking for an experienced digital marketer who can help us grow our database, ticket sales and reach a broader, more diverse audience.
