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.

NOT TO BE MISSED! 2 December

J. S. Bach Christmas Oratorio at St Paul's
What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than listening to J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio, this year again in the wonderful St. Paul's Cathedral. The essential Christmas story is sung in German by the Melbourne Chamber Choir, with orchestra and outstanding soloists Lisa-Anne Robinson (soprano), Sally-Anne Russell (mezzo), Robert Macfarlane (tenor) and Oliver Mann (bass). This 'Melbourne' version keeps the traditional story centre stage, framed by every chorus, singalong chorales and the most popular arias. 2 December, 5pm, St Paul's Cathedral
