Bakewell Choral Society is a friendly, mixed choir of more than 80 members, which was founded by the late Richard Barnes in 1978, who went on to become musical director and conductor of the choir for over 30 years.

Alan Eost joined us as musical director and conductor in 2013 . The choir performs four public concerts each year, including the popular Christmas Words and Music concert in December.

Other concerts are a blend of sacred and secular choral music, covering a wide repertoire from classical to contemporary works including commissioned works for the society.

The choir will be performing this year’s Christmas Words and Music concert on December 13 at Bakewell Methodist Church.
