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 2018-2019, up to the amount of $3400.
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.
The two concerts scheduled for the 2018/2019 season will feature two very contrasting programs: the fall concert will be mainly a cappella, and in the spring, we will present a “festival-style concert” with a chamber orchestra joining the Bach Chorale for a Bach cantata and other choral and orchestral masterworks.
Experienced choral musicians of any vocal range (particularly sopranos and tenors) are cordially invited to join us. Auditions will be held in September 2018.
For further information, please contact us through our auditions page.
We rehearse Wednesday nights from 7:30 to 9:30 at Central Reformed Church in Grand Rapids. Our rehearsals for fall 2018 will begin on September 5.
