Join the Exeter Bach Society
The Exeter Bach Choir membership year runs from the beginning of September until early June the following year. We rehearse on Thursday evenings, 19:00 - 21:15, at the Salvation Army Temple, Friars Gate, Exeter.
The first rehearsal for the 2021/22 season will be on Thursday 23 September 2021.
We are always keen to welcome new singers into our society. Our members cover a wide range of musical experience, from enthusiastic beginners to seasoned performers. Previous experience of singing in German is a bonus (but certainly not essential) as we often sing Bach’s works in the original German.
We perform with soloists, both local and from elsewhere, and are joined by a professional orchestra for most concerts.
If you would like to sing with the choir, please download and complete the Application Form (PDF) / Application Form (Word) and email a copy to Nick du Buisson. After your first few rehearsals there will be a short voice assessment. These voice assessments are updated every two years to ensure members are keeping their voices in good shape.
The annual membership subscription for 2021/22 is £110, payable in September. The fee for those joining after Christmas is £80, and for those joining after Easter £40. There is a special reduced annual subscription of £25 for members aged 24 or younger. Subscriptions are payable after the voice assessment and monthly instalments can be arranged if required.
