Welcome to our website where we look forward to sharing the great gift of music with you all
The East Cornwall Bach Choir is a registered charity promoting a love of music in this area. We are an auditioned choir of amateur singers, currently about 48 strong, based in Liskeard, East Cornwall. Bach features in many programmes but the choir also performs a wide range of music from the choral repertoire. ECBC usually gives three concerts a year, one in Bodmin Church just before Christmas,one in St Martins church Liskeard at Easter, and at concert in June at St Germans. The choir employs a professional conductor throughout the year and professional instrumentalists and singers for the concerts.
A particular highlight of our year is our Choral Singing Day, which is open to all. We meet on a Saturday in early spring to rehearse a work from scratch followed by an informal performance in the evening. This is well-supported by individuals and local choirs and for many it provides a stepping-stone to membership of ECBC.
