The San Francisco Bach Choir offers dedicated singers the opportunity to study and perform both Early Music and the diverse repertoire of great works from other eras and genres. We use historically informed performance practice, and perform with world-class professional instrumentalists and soloists, both period and modern.

Our volunteer singing membership is drawn from the Bay Area’s large community of trained, non-professional musicians. Our seventy-voice volunteer choir holds auditions periodically throughout the year. We are looking for experienced choral singers with good musical skills and an enthusiasm for participating in an active and dynamic musical organization.

Join us for an exciting season of inspired and dedicated singing!

Come sing the music of Bach, Mozart, and Handel, as well as some lesser-known gems, all performed with world-class period music instrumentalists and soloists.

Tenors and basses especially welcome, limited spaces available for soprano and alto.

We rehearse Tuesdays 7-10 PM in San Francisco (with occasional weekend workshops). Here is our full season rehearsal and performance schedule.
