S. Bach’s Cantatas 40 and 73.

The Bach Chorale of Grand Rapids is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts. MCACA will match contributions made to the Chorale during the fiscal year 2017-2018, up to the amount of $3200.
The Bach Chorale is also pleased to report contributions during this season from the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, and from the H. Henry Meeter Center for Calvin Studies at Calvin College.
The Bach Chorale is continuing to establish itself as a premier choral ensemble dedicated to performing significant works of the finest choral and choral/orchestral repertoire. Experienced choral musicians of any vocal range (particularly sopranos and tenors) are cordially invited to join us. Auditions will be held in late February 2018.
