Thank you to all our supporters - old and new, regular and one-off, during our 2017/8 season which concluded with an unusual and emotional concert, The Music of Eastern Europe. Quite a departure from Bach! Of course he has not been forgotten, with performances of cantatas at Christmas and Easter. And the upside to the huge disappointment of having to cancel St Matthew Passion (due to heavy snowfall and resultant safety issues) is that we have rescheduled this iconic work for Saturday 9 March 2019. Make sure you keep the date free.
We are currently finalising the details of our 2018/9 programme, so - as well as keeping up to date via our website, do keep an eye out for our annual red leaflet which will be circulated to libraries and tourist information centres in August.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Exeter Bach Society, we are a mixed-voice (SATB) choir specialising in the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Three concerts are performed each year with orchestral/soloist support as required from some of the best professional musicians in the South West and further afield. Additionally we host instrument/vocal recitals, talks by acclaimed speakers and an annual public choral workshop with a conductor of national (and sometimes international) repute. Importantly, also, we are one of the very few choirs which still performs J S Bach’s cantatas in their original format as a part of a church service. You will see, therefore, that we offer a programme of immense variety and interest.
We look forward to welcoming newcomers and established friends alike to some or all of our concerts and events in 2018/9, and in the meantime wish you a very relaxing summer.
