History & Mission:

The UBCD has one of the longest traditions in the Netherlands.

Each first Sunday of the month (excepting those in the Summer holiday season) you can hear J.S. Bach's Church music being performed in the Church Geertekerk in Utrecht at 7.30 p.m. The performance has a mixed character, between a concert and a church service. Admission is free, although there is a voluntary retiring collection.
The performance of the cantata itself is preceded by an introductory meditation touching upon the text of the cantata. The audience may join in the singing of the four-part closing chorale. Anyone can join the orchestra or the choir. No membership fee is required, but voluntary donations are very much appreciated. This has been UBCD's motto since 1967, and it still is.
