Northampton Bach Choir
Hear Us
The Northampton Bach Choir is one of the foremost choruses in the region, and the largest choir in the county, numbering some 130 singers.

It owes its formation to Denys Pouncey, a former organist of St Matthew’s Church, giving its first concert there on Palm Sunday 1935. During its time it has nurtured a series of young, enthusiastic, not to say visionary, musical directors, many of whom have gone on to forge careers of national and international significance....

  After our fabulous Viva Italia concert on the 24th of June we have a summer break. We look forward to starting rehearsals again in September, with our new musical director Simon Toyne, for Haydn's Creation which will be performed at St Matthew's Church on Friday 27th October. Our popular Christmas concert will be on Saturday 16th December at 7pm. We hope to welcome you to one or both of these concerts.
