Our 'Friends' Scheme
Becoming a friend of the Northampton Bach Choir

Share your love of music by becoming a ‘Friend’

Becoming a ‘Friend’ of the Northampton Bach Choir is the perfect way to support the great tradition of live music-making in our county. For as little as £25 per annum, ‘Friends’ receive advance notification of forthcoming performances, and priority booking for our own concerts. The choir’s regular concert venue is St Matthew’s Church on the Kettering Road, Northampton, and only ‘Friends’ of the choir are entitled to allocated seating. In addition to these benefits, there are bi-annual events for the ‘Friends’, which include informative pre-concert talks by our Musical Director, and informal social evenings, most recently a lakeside soirée.

Find out what our ‘Friends’ say

Being a ‘Friend’ of the Northampton Bach Choir is not just about supporting them, it is feeling part of the choir without all the hard work the talented members put in to produce their concerts! That wonderful voice of the choir, under the skilled and innovative leadership of Lee Dunleavy, has led me to become an ardent ‘Friend’ with all the privileges this offers. I not only have booked front seats at their local concerts, but have travelled to Venice, Bruges, and the Netherlands with them, and heard them sing in St Paul’s and Winchester Cathedrals. I have also had the opportunity to attend lectures by eminent musicians, to sing along with the choir, as well as being invited to social activities. In the process of doing all of this I have been thrilled by beautiful music, in beautiful settings, as well as making new likeminded friends; what could be better?
