Melbourne Bach Choir is a choir drawing on singers of all ages throughout Melbourne’s extensive choral community, giving singers and audiences alike the opportunity to experience live choral music. The choir works to achieve fine choral performances and is committed to donating to community aid and charity organisations.
The Melbourne Bach Choir was formed in 2005 to give an Easter performance of J. S. Bach’s magnificent St. Matthew Passion in 2006. The choir has since expanded its repertoire to include a broad range of styles, and gives at least four major concerts each year; however Bach’s music remains at the core of its performance.
Over the past two years the Choir has given Good Friday performances of the St Matthew Passion and the St John Passion to sell-out audiences in the Melbourne Recital Centre.
Developments over the past two years have been the creation of a chamber choir, a new scholarship program, and a tour to Europe giving five concerts in Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic.
