Ottawa Bach Choir’s 20th anniversary season of spectacular choral music!

The Ottawa Bach Choir (OBC) is excited to welcome you to its 20th anniversary season of stunning 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, including a recent JUNO award for our album Handel: Dixit Dominus, Bach & Schütz: Motets! 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 June 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.


The choir is delighted to be able to safely offer an entire season of choral music in 2021-2022, with in-person live concerts as well as in our successful Digital Concert Hall. We also introduce our new Administrative Manager, Emily O’Kane, who brings passion and enthusiasm to the OBC.

The Season Series offers three magnificent concerts:

(1) Bach Motets, Available as of October 2, 2021, 8 PM, in OBC’s Digital Concert Hall

(2) Bach: Mass in B Minor, Saturday, November 27, 2021, 7:30 PM, Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre, 355 Cooper St. & OBC’s Digital Concert Hall
