Cal Bach Choral Workshop
California Bach Society is presenting its sixth annual choral workshop. This year's workshop will cover the opening choruses of five Bach cantatas:
Cantata 4,Christ lag in Todesbanden Cantata 6,Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden Cantata 21,Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis Cantata 75,Die Elenden sollen essen Cantata 78,Jesu, der du meine Seele
Cal Bach's artistic director Paul Flight, who also leads Chora Nova, conducts. He's great to work with, a terrific all-around musician and exceptional chorus director.
The workshop is on Saturday, August 20, 2011, from 10:30 to 3:30, in Palo Alto (presumably at the church where Cal Bach rehearses). The cost is $50, which includes music and food. Details and online registration are at http://calbach.org/workshop.html.
