The ensemble is still performing the St Matthew Passion in the Grote Kerk in Naarden every year. Around sixty concerts a season are given throughout the Netherlands. The ensemble has been a guest in various European cities and has given concert tours in the United States and Japan. It also performed at the Musikfest Stuttgart and the Bachbiennale Weimar.
The ensemble invites specialist guest conductors several times a year. For example, the ensemble has worked with Richard Egarr, Peter Dijkstra, Paul McCreesh, Iván Fischer, Masaaki Suzuki, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Konrad Junghänel, Ed Spanjaard and Gustav Leonhardt. In the season 2018-2019, Marcus Creed and Philippe Herreweghe will conduct the Netherlands Bach Society, among others.
The Netherlands Bach Society attaches great importance to education. Every year, many schools attend one of the St Matthew concerts as part of the educational project Face to face with the St Matthew Passion. These projects actively contribute to developing future audiences. In 2014, the Netherlands Bach Society started All of Bach, a long-term project in which all of Bach’s works will be performed and recorded. Still every Friday, a new recording is published online on allofbach.com.
