4 Vespers Advent.JPG
2021–22 SEASON

Welcome to a new season of Bach! This year we continue our mission to perform 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. This season we are also continuing our exploration of the rarely-performed music from the New World in the time of Bach. Many of our concerts and Bach Vespers will be offered both in person and live streamed on this website and social media, and we're very happy to be resuming our pre-concert and vespers talks by leading Bach scholars from around the world. However you're able to join us, we look forward to having you. Due to the evolving situation, we are only posting events through January 1, 2022; please check back in the coming weeks for the rest of the season.
