Sharing our passion for the art of distinctive choral singing with the greater Milwaukee community
The Bach Chamber Choir was founded in Milwaukee in 1969 and has performed continuously in the Milwaukee area since then. Our choir performs music from the medieval to the modern classics and beyond.
The group consists of amateur, student, and professional musicians who present concerts throughout the season. The singers audition in order to become part of the ensemble. The music is free and we strive to keep the yearly dues affordable.
Our director and accompanist are professional musicians and are our only paid staff members.
