We are delighted that John Rutter CBE has become President of The Bach Choir, succeeding Leopold de Rothschild who died last year.
John has a long association with The Bach Choir which began in the 1950s when he attended our Christmas concerts and annual performances of St. Matthew Passion as a boy. His work with Sir David Willcocks, the Choir’s Musical Director from 1960-1998 is well-known, and this led to the inclusion of many of his carols in our Christmas repertoire over a number of years. Most recently, we joined forces with John and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to record the highly acclaimed Christmas release The Colours of Christmas, which reached No. 3 in the Official Classical Charts in 2011.
John has been a Vice President of The Bach Choir since 2006.
