Ottawa Bach Choir (OBC) – The Ottawa Bach Choir is turning thirteen this year and we have planned an amazing season of choral wonders! Just a couple months ago, this world-class professional ensemble completed its fourth 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 this season include a Subscription Series and Special Concerts, including its popular Venetian Carnival gala fundraiser. The Ottawa Bach Choir is pleased to offer its audiences a Subscription Series for a limited time only.Read more...
