Now in its 34th season, the Houston Chronicle calls Bach Society Houston “the city’s major celebrant of Bach’s glorious legacy.” BSH brings rich, vibrant, historically-informed performances of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries to a diverse, enthusiastic audience through concerts, Bach Vespers, organ recitals, and chamber music concerts. Resident ensembles consist of the Bach Choir, a 16-voice professional choir, and the Bach Orchestra, an ensemble with members from all over the United States performing on instruments from Bach’s time. BSH also presents international instrumentalists, singers, and guest conductors.
