It is my distinct pleasure, as Founder and Artistic Director, to invite you to  subscribe to the Ottawa Bach Choir's fourteenth season of magnificent choral works. Over the last 13 years, the professional ensemble has travelled the world and received national and international recognition. Just a few weeks ago, the choir concluded its previous season with participation in the Luminato Festival of Toronto, performing as part of the much-anticipated Apocalypsis by Canada's own R. Murray Schafer with 12 choirs from across Ontario as well as 1000 artists. Last season, 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. 

Performances this season include a Subscription Series and several Special Events. The season opens with a special Fall Fiesta Fundraising Dinner and Concert at the St. Elias Centre. Come discover the beauty the best of choral music has to offer!

Concert Review : Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem in Quebec City

Ottawa Bach Choir brings Brahms to Québec


A typical Ottawa music season finds the Ottawa Bach Choir and its founder/conductor Lisette Canton giving three major concerts and occasionally participating in sundry events. Some summers they perform in Chamberfest and/or Music and Beyond. But these facts don't tell the whole story. In June of this year they did a five-city European tour during which they were received with enthusiasm everywhere they went: Venice, Leipzig, Lubeck, Groningen and Amsterdam.


Review: European Tour 2014

obc-photos-at-bachs-tomb-in-thomaskirche-toddComing to Leipzig to hear Bach is a pilgrimage, especially during the annual Bachfest in June. And singing in the Thomaskirche, the church from which Bach performed his functions as the city's music director, is clearly an experience like no other especially for the Ottawa Bach Choir and its founder, Lisette Canon.

The intensity of their rehearsing over the last couple of days has been exhausting for this observer, and I can't begin to imagine what it must be like for those actually doing it. "You didn't come all this way to do it almost right" was the leitmotif of Canton's every-note-counts direction.
