Bach at Noon

Initiated in 2005, this free concert series was designed as a community and economic development initiative educating new audiences about Bach’s music. It includes seven performances throughout the year at Central Moravian Church in Bethlehem and three summer concerts at St. John’s Lutheran Church in downtown Allentown. Greg Funfgeld introduces each program with an engaging, informal talk. Bach at Noon has been a phenomenal success attracting audiences of all ages totaling more than 8,000 a year. A frequent response from audience members is, “This is such a blessing!”

This season, we’re thrilled to announce that our Bach at Noon concerts will be broadcast by WWFM, the Classical Network.  This award-winning classical music station is listener supported, and has offered a number of Bach Choir concerts in previous seasons.  We’re delighted that they’ll be sharing our joyous Bach at Noon concerts with listeners near and far each month!

Christmas Concerts

The Choir’s long tradition of offering Christmas music concerts began with the first complete performance of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in the United States in 1901. Since then, the Choir has continued to bring Bach’s music, along with the sacred Christmas music of other composers, including more contemporary pieces, to the community with its annual December concerts in Allentown and Bethlehem.
