Our regular December concerts in St Machar's Cathedral will now take place (normally) on the first Saturday in December, instead of the 'traditional' Sunday date.

The December 2023 peformance features sacred works for choir, soloists and organ, composed in France over a span of a hundred years between the 19th and 20th centuries.

Tickets are on sale from Aberdeen Box Office priced at £18 adult, £5.63 under 26, free under 16. Prices include a programme. You can also buy tickets from choir members, and a limited number of tickets may be available on the door.

Welcome to Aberdeen Bach Choir’s website. We are a friendly, non-auditioning, mixed-voice choir, open to anyone aged 15 or over. Established for over 65 years, we have become one of the city’s most respected amateur choirs, performing a wide range of sacred choral music, with an emphasis on the works of J.S. Bach. We usually perform two concerts each year, in April and December, with professional soloists and musicians.
