Our Mission

The St. Thomas Bach Ensemble enriches and inspires the musical life of the Cincinnati area through the performance of the music of J. S. Bach, his contemporaries, and musical heirs.

The STBE serves as ensemble-in-residence at St. Thomas Episcopal Church where it leads the monthly Bach Vespers, performing the cantatas of J. S. Bach in the context for which they are written.

The STBE is committed to historically informed performances of Bach’s music and artistic collaborations with other musical ensembles.
