The F-M Bach Choir, an auditioned, community choir, was founded in 2021 by Dr. Kathryn Rolf, Artistic Director and Conductor, as an outreach of Immanuel Lutheran Church. The mission of the ensemble is to bring J. S. Bach's music and the message it artfully communicates to the F-M area. The choir performs sacred Baroque repertoire with professional soloists and instrumentalists. A freewill offering is taken at concerts to support future Bach Choir performances.
