2020 Weekends:

The Dorset Bach Cantata Club meets for three weekends each year at Sturminster Newton High School, Bath Road, Sturminster Newton DT10 1DT.


The Club provides a unique opportunity for amateur choral singers to study, rehearse and perform these inspiring, deeply spiritual, joyous works. There is no audition.

We sing Bach in German. You do not need to be a German speaker. Help is given with pronunciation and diction, and translations are available.


The choir rehearses intensively on Saturday, with expert direction and keyboard accompaniment. An invited orchestra joins the choir on Sunday. The weekend culminates in an informal performance for friends and family.
