Bach Meets Rheinberger and Franck, October 2008

“The Bach Society chorus, under Maestro John Neely, provided an absolutely wonderful afternoon of stirring music.” The Oakwood Register, Burt Saidel, Nov 2011

“One of the best performances I’ve seen in a while was last weekend’s presentation of Bach’s Magnificat, choral celebrations of Mary, by the Bach Society. The society drew a good-sized crowd to Kettering’s Seventh-day Adventist Church and knocked it out of the park. If you haven’t attended a Bach Society concert, you’re missing out.” Dayton Daily News, Ron Rollins, April 2009

“Eight singers from Xenia High School, along with their choral director Brent Manley, joined the 50-some Bach Society chorus….And while the purpose of their inclusion was to inspire the young people to the joys of this particular music, the effect was a fully energized Bach Society.” Dayton Daily News, Carol Simmons, March 2008

“The concert opened with Brahms’ well-known Ein Deutsches Requiem (German Requiem), Op. 45, performed with the composer’s less familiar arrangement for two-piano accompaniment, rather than the traditional orchestra (the so-called ‘London’ version). With the locally-based piano duo of Robert and Tiraje Ruckman at the keyboards, the work’s personal intimacy felt particularly acute.” Dayton Daily News, Carol Simmons, May 2007

“The choir and chamber orchestra, led by Director John Neely, performed with studied professionalism and sensitivity. Adding further burnish to the group’s luster were the afternoon’s guest soloists: Andrea Chenoweth, soprano; Liza Forrester, mezzo-soprano; Randall Black, tenor; and Jeremy Kelly, baritone.” Dayton Daily News, Carol Simmons, October 2006
