Berkshire Bach Singers (Choir)

Founded: Early 1990's - Great Barrington, Massachusetts, USA
Disbanded: 2003 (?)

The Berkshire Bach Singers, originally comprised of only twelve voices and eventually reaching 65, was formed in the very early years of the Berkshire Bach Society, and sang under choral conductors including James Bagwell, David Griggs Janower, Frank Nemhauser, Penna Rose, Jed Watson and Richard Westenburg. In 1994, the Berkshire Bach Singers were invited to assist with the acoustic tests for the nearly completed Seiji Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood, becoming the first human voices to resound in music within the Hall, and they continued to perform choral works there through 2003. The Society continues its dedication to presenting the choral works of J.S. Bach even though the Berkshire Bach Singers have disbanded.
