Founded in 2011, the Australian Bach Society's mission is to cultivate and disseminate a local appreciation of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, his family and contemporaries, as well as sacred/classical music in general, by arranging performances, lectures and other activities. We invite you to explore this website, attend an event, become a friend and/or donate. We'd love to keep in touch via our newsletter or social media.

Upcoming event 30 August

Encounters – Telemann meets Piazzola and others

Intensive musical and intercultural encounters based on G.P. Telemann’s ‘cheerful reflection of virtues’ translated and paired with music by A. Piazzolla, E. Granados, G. Perlman and others, performed by renowned German Duo Esther Schöpf (violin) & Norbert Groh (piano).

Come along to Encounters on 30 August at 7pm at Medley Hall, The University of Melbourne, Carlton. Renowned for its diversity and liveliness, the broad repertoire of Esther and Norbert spans nearly all musical genres: from classical concerts to easy-listening music. Besides their own performances, they regularly work together on numerous projects with theaters, filmmakers, performance artists and also compose music for radio plays.
