Bach for Life
A Message from our President Sir David Tang KBE
“It has been our special pleasure to present our annual Bachfests each autumn in addition to all our other activities; a rich and varied series of events from Bach’s masterpiece the St. Matthew Passion to a recital by the charismatic, contemporary pianist James Rhodes that have entertained and uplifted people of all ages. We have been privileged to present some of the best Bach singers and players from the UK and beyond to our platform.
This success will be enhanced in future by our plans to find and move into a London ‘home’ within the next five years. This will enable us to develop all our activities, promote them more effectively and for you to be able to come and see us at work. Watch this space…”

Our Development Plan for the Future
The objectives have been set to meet the needs of the London Bach Society in the future and develop the Society’s charitable and artistic purpose as a centre for Bach Performance and Study.
The two objectives
The two objectives of the campaign are: -
- To enhance and extend the existing network of support, support for the performing activities, educational and outreach work, audience development and general well-being
- To provide a central headquarters for the London Bach Society from which the Society can operate, house its Library and Archive, and develop its performing and educational activities
What will be the chief benefits of the London Bach Society having a central headquarters?
Apart from having somewhere to store all the belongings, LBS will be more visible and accessible and have a venue from which to promote its activities. Open Houses will enable everyone nationally as well as regionally, especially those who support us – Members, Donors, Bach Friends and volunteers – to come and see us, explore our Bach Book and Orchestral Library, use it for study and examine the LBS Archive… in other words to get involved.
What targets have we set?
This is a campaign that will run in tandem with our current work until such time as we have found our new home in London. The two objectives will influence forward planning as we prepare for the day when we can move into a London home.
