The California Bach Society, a 30-voice chamber chorus, has established a reputation for its interpretation of Renaissance and Baroque choral music since its founding in 1971. Specializing in historically informed performances since 1998, the choir under director Paul Flight has shared the stage with such early music luminaries as Magnificat and members of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and was a main stage presenter at the 2018 Berkeley Early Music Festival.
We open the 2019-2020 season with JS Bach's Magnificat
and Zelenka's wonderful Missa Divi Xaverii
. We celebrate the holidays in the New World with five centuries of music from the Americas. In the winter of 2020, we perform 20th century British Masterpieces by Holst, Howells, and Vaughan Williams, and conclude the season with musical splendors composed for St. Mark's in Venice.
Season tickets are available starting April 26, 2019. Individual concert tickets will be available in July.
