Season 52: A Bicentennial Celebration

We are delighted and thrilled to announce Season 52: A Bicentennial Celebration! The State of Indiana is celebrating the 200th anniversary of its statehood in the Union and the Bach Chorale is paying tribute with a suite of concerts this Fall and next Spring. 

While we're excited about our entire program, we are particularly proud of our Youth Choirs, who will participate in the Indiana Voices in Song festival in November. In a great twist of fortune for residents of the Twin Cities, this festival will take place at our own Purdue University. The festival culminates in a final performance, which will be a "Can't-Miss" opportunity.

Details are available on our Concerts page.

We look forward to making joyous music for you all!

Lafayette Children's Choir at the Ballgame!

PLAY BALL! The Lafayette Children's Choir gave the Lafayette Aviators a warm welcome to the community by singing the National Anthem at their very first home game on June 1st. The stirring rendition could be heard even at the Columbian Park Zoo! It was an honor and a treat to participate in such a special event. We look forward to many more games, peanuts, and crackerjack this summer.

An Interview with Jan Simon of WBAA

Our conductor, Michelle Louer, spoke with WBAA's Jan Simon about our performance of "Annelies" this weekend, music in general, and its relationship with the human spirit! It's a fascinating 7 1/2 minute glimpse behind-the-scenes and into the future of our 51st season.

Our 51st Season

This season is, in the words of Leonard Bernstein, whose music we will perform, "our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before." 

Learn more about this exciting season, which begins with a performance of James Whitbourn's majestic and moving Annelies, based on the diary of Anne Frank, on our Concerts page.
