ABOUT OXFORD BACH SOLOISTS
The Oxford Bach Soloists (OBS) exists to perform the complete vocal works of J. S. Bach in Oxford. Drawing from an abundance of Oxford talent, OBS provides the next generation of young soloists, many of whom are choral scholars from the University’s college chapels, with the opportunity to collaborate with a professional baroque orchestra.
OBS also exists to provide a laboratory for current research, working together with Professors from the University of Oxford’s Faculties of Music, Theology, and Modern Languages.
