As one of the finest large choirs in the area, we sing under our Musical Director Andrew Lucas with professional orchestras and soloists. Our usual venue is the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban, but we occasionally perform in other prestigious venues and under other high profile conductors. You can learn more about the choir and what it means to some of us from this video.

St Albans Bach Choir welcomes approaches from any individual or organisation interested in sponsoring the choir.
We are seeking partners who might like to make one or more of our concerts a joint venture. This would be a mutually beneficial enterprise offering an excellent marketing opportunity for sponsors to entertain their clients and staff with performances of a professional standard.
With publicity for your organisation in our programmes and promotional literature, you would be associated with a prestigious choir that is well-established in the community and which engages not only soloists and orchestras of the highest calibre, but often promotes young singers, many of whom have since developed international careers.
To stage these high quality concerts we rely heavily on donations and sponsorship. To find out more about this opportunity please email:
