2022–23OUR 40TH SEASON 

Welcome to a the special anniversary season of Bach! For 40 years we have performed the many masterpieces of Johann Sebastian and those in his circle, from powerful presentations with the full Bach Choir and Orchestra to intimate performances of Bach's solo and chamber works, and everything in between. In this special 2022–23 season, we are especially excited to present the jubilant Christmas Oratorio, the complete virtuosic Brandenburg Concertos, and the world premiere of Rick Erickson's St. John Passion. We're also honored and excited to have been invited to sing again at the Leipzig Bach Festival in Germany — stay tuned for more info on that! As ever, you are most welcome to join us in person or online for our live streams. However you're able to join us, we look forward to having you.
