The Sydney Bach Society in association with Christ Church St Laurence is delighted to present 3 Thursday lunch-time concerts as part of its inaugural ‘All Bach Series’.

We welcome old and new lovers of J.S. Bach’s music to these casual, bite sized events. The 40 minute concerts will showcase an impressive array of local and international talent in the beautiful surrounds of Christ Church St Laurence – a historical church in the beating heart of Sydney’s George Street.

Join us as we celebrate Bach’s 333rd birthday!
