"The city's major celebrant of Bach." 
 
— Houston Chronicle
Performance Music, Houston, TX

Mission

 

Bach Society Houston presents rich, vibrant, historically-informed live music performances of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries in Houston, TX.

Rick Erickson, Director

 

Prior to Bach Society Houston, Rick served for 22 years as Cantor at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in New York, where he directed the Bach Vespers series.

Bach Organ

 

From the outset, the design concept of the Bach Organ was simple: to build an instrument on which to play the works of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Continuo Keyboards

 

We use three main instruments: the Kalsbeek harpsichord based on Mietke, the Self spinet based on Delin, and the Taylor & Boody portative organ. 

History

 

Since its founding over 35 years ago, Bach Society Houston has become not only a major cultural organization of the United States, but a musical ambassador abroad.
