Ottawa Bach Choir presents “Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem”

The JUNO award winning Ottawa Bach Choir (OBC) presents the second concert of its 21st season, Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem, on Saturday, March 11, 2023, 8:00pm. This concert features the chamber version for piano four-hands, arranged by the composer himself, along with works by Telemann and Bach.  Joined by pianists Matthew Larkin and Frédéric Lacroix, and soloists, soprano Jonelle Sills and baritone Geoffrey Sirett, this spectacular concert will be performed at St. Matthew’s Church, in Ottawa, 130 Glebe Avenue. 

“For our second concert, we present one of the greatest choral works ever written, Brahms’ German Requiem,” says Founder and Artistic Director, Lisette Canton. “With some of Canada’s finest soloists, coupled with some fabulous German motets by Bach and Telemann, this concert promises to inspire us all. Join us for this moving presentation.”

Founded in 2002 by Dr. Lisette Canton, the Ottawa Bach Choir offers a wide range of choral music from all historical periods. With the combination of a scholarly and emotional approach, the OBC provides an unforgettable experience of choral music at its best. The OBC won the 2020 JUNO Award for its album, Handel: Dixit Dominus; Bach & Schütz: Motets, in the category Classical Album of the Year: Vocal or Choral, and has just returned from the prestigious international festival, Bachfest Leipzig, this past June 2022. The OBC has toured extensively in Canada, Europe, the United States and China, and had the honour of being the first Canadian choir ever to be among the performers in Bachfest Leipzig 2014. The OBC will release its 8th album, J.S. Bach: Six Motets, in April 2023.
