ESBC contributes through the engagement and commitment of its singers and by giving audiences the opportunity to hear both well-known works and some less well-known works that may deserve to be better know. While the choir’s repertoire certainly includes the works of JS Bach and other baroque composers, it is by no means limited to these. For regular events or to audition, see Bach | East Sussex Bach Choir | Lewes
