Reading Bach Choir is a 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.
As well as concerts, the choir is involved with charitable fund-raising especially at Christmas. Recent years has seen them partnered with Launchpad, the Reading homelessness charity. They also run an award-nominated Singing for the Brain group.

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.
