In the spirit of Oktoberfest, the Ottawa Bach Choir, in collaboration with Ars Nova and several local businesses, presents a concert and special event on Sunday, September, 30, 2018, 3 PM, at St. Bartholomew’s Church, including an afternoon of beautiful music by Johann Sebastian Bach and his Baroque contemporaries, local beer brewed by Kichesippi Beer Co., wine, delectable delights by Par Toutatis, hors d’œuvres and sumptuous desserts. Enjoy an afternoon of delightful company, inspiring music by the OBC and organist Matthew Larkin, along with delicious food and drink.

 Founded in 2002 by Dr. Lisette Canton, the OBC offers a wide range of choral music from all historical periods, featuring some of Canada’s top choristers. With the combination of a scholarly and emotional approach, the OBC provides an unforgettable experience of choral music at its best.

The OBC has toured extensively in Canada, the United States, and Europe, and was invited to perform as Canada’s choral representative in the prestigious Meet in Beijing arts festival in Beijing, China, in April 2016. In 2014, the choir completed a two-week tour of Venice, Leipzig, Lübeck, Groningen, and Amsterdam, and had the honour of being the first Canadian choir ever to be among the performers in the world’s most prestigious international Bach festival, the Bachfest Leipzig 2014.
