The Kentucky Bach Choir is getting ready for its spring concert with performance of the music of Bach and Handel. The group was founded in 2007 as the Lexington Bach Choir. London, Kentucky native Marlon Hurst became artistic director in 2009 when choir founder Richard Sowers took a job out of state.
Hurst, who is also Director of Music at a Lexington church, tells Arts Weekly’s Michael Carter that, during the past four years, the group has expanded from 16 members to the current number of 26 singers.
The Kentucky Bach Choir’s spring concerts of “Handel and Bach,” including the Tates Creek High School Choir, take place Friday April 26th at the First Presbyterian Church in Lexington and Saturday the 27th at the Gateway Regional Arts Center in Mt. Sterling.
