The Edinburgh Bach Choir is delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Doughty as our new Musical Director.  Stephen has taken up post with the Choir on 1 April 2017.  Stephen read Music at the University of Edinburgh before graduating with a Master’s Degree from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Glasgow, in 1997.  Read more about Stephen Doughty here.

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.
