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.

Recent highlights have included his debut with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, broadcast live on national radio, and recitals in Washington National Cathedral, The Cathedral of St John Divine, New York, and Notre Dame de Paris. He has also performed in many of the major British venues, including King’s College, Cambridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.
