Ottawa Bach Choir’s 19th season of glorious choral music

The Ottawa Bach Choir (OBC) would like to invite you to the 2020-2021 season and its nineteenth season of glorious choral music! The professional ensemble has not only travelled the world and received national and international recognition, it also has many ‘firsts’ to its credit. And now, in 2020, the OBC received its first JUNO nomination and, this past summer, won its first JUNO award, in the category Classical Album of the Year: Vocal or Choral, for our album Handel: Dixit Dominus, Bach & Schütz: Motets! After several months of uncertainty, the choir is delighted to be able to safely offer an entire season of choral music in its new Digital Concert Hall, along with Live Concerts beginning in March 2021 (dependent on performance venue limitations). The choir will record its eighth album this season, and has been invited to return to the world’s most prestigious international Bach festival, Bachfest Leipzig, in 2022 (postponed from 2020), as one of a select number of ensembles worldwide (and the only Canadian ensemble) to present the entire chorale cantata cycle of Bach. We look forward to welcoming you to our new season and invite you to join us online in our new virtual format, and eventually in person. Come discover the best that choral music has to offer!

The Season Series offers three spectacular concerts:

(1) Hodie, Saturday, December 5, 2020, 8 PM, available in OBC’s Digital Concert Hall

(2) The French Renaissance, Saturday, March 6, 2021, 8 PM, Knox Presbyterian Church, 120 Lisgar St. & OBC’s Digital Concert Hall

Join us and come discover the best that choral music has to offer!
