Next Concert
This year marks a momentous milestone for the Northampton Bach Choir as it celebrates its 90th anniversary. Founded in 1935 by Denys Pouncey, the choir has grown to become the largest and one of the most prestigious choral groups in the county, known for its dynamic range and emotive performances. In honour of this significant anniversary, the choir is set to present a special concert that promises to be a highlight of the musical calendar.

The centrepiece of the celebration will be a performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion, sung in English. This monumental work, renowned for its depth and expressiveness, will showcase the choir's versatility and commitment to bringing classical masterpieces to life. Accompanying the choir will be professional soloists and a period-instrument orchestra, ensuring an authentic and powerful rendition of Bach's composition.

Over the years, the Northampton Bach Choir has not only entertained and inspired audiences but has also contributed significantly to the cultural fabric of the region. From its first concert on Palm Sunday in 1935 to today, the choir has nurtured talented musical directors and collaborated with leading orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The choir's repertoire spans from sacred music to contemporary pieces, reflecting its adaptability and broad musical interest​​​​.

The anniversary concert offers an opportunity for both long-standing supporters and new audiences to join in celebration of the choir's 90-year legacy. It's a testament to the choir's enduring passion for choral music and its role in enriching the community's cultural life. As the choir continues to welcome new members and explore new musical territories, this concert will undoubtedly mark the beginning of another exciting chapter in its history.
