The New Hampshire Chamber Choir was formed in 2009 by several church musicians and others who wanted to provide a setting for singers and instrumentalists to learn, perform, and enjoy the smaller liturgical and chamber works of Johann Sebastian Bach and other Baroque composers. One of the several hundred Bach Cantatas is featured in each concert. The choir has 14 members and is now in its third season. Concerts are free and open to the public.
