Dear Music Lover,
It is my distinct pleasure, as Founder and Artistic Director, to invite you to subscribe to the Ottawa Bach Choir's fifteenth anniversary season of spectacular choral music. Over the last 13 years, the professional ensemble has travelled the world and received national and international recognition. The choir has just returned from China, where it was invited to perform as Canada's choral representative in the prestigious festival, Meet in Beijing 2016. In 2014, the OBC completed its 4th European tour, which included an invitation to perform in the Bachfest Leipzig 2014 at the Thomaskirche, in Leipzig, Germany, as the first Canadian choir ever to be invited. As the choir expands in breadth, performances in this anniversary season include a Subscription Series, the launch of the choir's 6th CD and several Special Events. The season opens with a special Fall Garden Party, A Sunday with Bach, at the German Ambassador's residence. Come discover the best that choral music has to offer!
