Reading Bach Choir is an amateur choir based in Reading, consisting of around 50 members, passionate about achieving the highest possible standards.

The choir gives four concerts a year, in and around Reading in Berkshire. Some are a cappella and others are with professional soloists & instrumentalists. The repertoire is very varied – from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Programmes are stimulating, sometimes challenging, and often include unusual or lesser known works. There is a particular love for and loyalty to the works of JS Bach but at the same time this is THE amateur choir presenting contemporary, different and yet beautifully accessible choral music.

“It doesn’t come better than this. There is a timeless spirituality about Reading Bach Choir performing JS Bach…”

– Newbury Weekly News

Through our performance we want audiences to share with us the excitement of unfamiliar vocal landscapes as well as a re-creation of the familiar.

”truly accomplished choral music”

We also sing for charity, particularly at Christmas, and you can book the choir for your wedding or company event in and around Reading.

In recent years the choir has toured to Belgium, singing at the Menin Gate and the cathedrals in Ypres and Ghent. In 2016 we sang in Riga, Latvia and in 2017 we headed to Amsterdam.
