The Edinburgh Bach Choir is delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Doughty as our new Musical Director. Stephen is currently Guest Conductor of the Choir and will formally take up post on 1 April 2017.

The Choir performs three concerts a year with up to 100 singers. One concert a year is usually dedicated to J S Bach. We’ve also sung a wide repertoire in recent years, ranging from 16th to 20th century composers: Monteverdi to Constant Lambert, Byrd to Duruflé, Handel to Stravinsky. We recently performed the beautiful Canterbury Pilgrims by George Dyson.
