About us

Named after the Café Zimmermann in Leipzig where Bach performed in the early 1700s, the Zimmermann Band was founded by Chris Jeanes in 2018 for a concert of Bach cantatas at All Saint's Blackheath. Since then, the ensemble has expanded from the basis of a string quartet playing on historical instruments, to include a vocal ensemble which debuted in February 2020, all specialising in music from the 18th century, particularly Bach cantatas.
