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.
