We were sad to have to announce the cancellation of our major concert, J S Bach's St Matthew Passion, on Saturday 3rd March. The severity of the weather - a problem in itself, also caused the venue to be deemed unsafe for the audience to attend and left us with no other option. By now those of you who booked online through TicketSource should have received your refund. If you booked through any other source and still have a refund to process, please contact the society directly at [email protected] by the end of May 2018.
Despite this huge disappointment, our season has continued with two moving Cantata performances after Easter and two exciting recitals by Trio Exe and Exeter-born international tenor, Thomas Hobbs.
The Music of Eastern Europe, our final concert of the season, takes place on 2 June and is definitely not to be missed, especially as the choir has been extending both its musical and language repertoires! Please see the Concerts & Events page for details and ticket information.
Exeter Bach Society is an SATB choir based in Exeter, Devon, specialising in the choral works of Johann Sebastian Bach. The choir gives two to three full-length concerts per year with orchestral support from some of the best professional musicians in the South West. In addition, the society puts on recitals and talks by internationally renowned soloists and academics as well as being one of few choirs which still perform J S Bach’s cantatas in their original format as a part of a service. The society also hosts an annual choral workshop open to the public with a conductor of national repute.
