Join us for an edifying and entertaining afternoon of glorious music, sparkling conversation, and delectable treats as we toast our favorite composer. Artistic Director Paul Flight will be our guide on a fascinating musical exploration of Bach's life and genius.
Plus, take advantage of this opportunity to support the chorus in our ambitious plan to perform Bach's monumental masterpiece, the St. Matthew Passion, in 2016. Your donations at this event will be instrumental in bringing this great work to life. Please help make this dream come true!

Our Annual Fundraiser
Once each year, the California Bach Society presents a fundraiser — a festive occasion where the chorus, our donors, supporters and subscribers, and fabulous guest performers enjoy a special music event, benefiting the California Bach Society. We offer a variety of music, often the works of our namesake Johann Sebastian Bach, in a more intimate atmosphere — where there is less separation of performer and audience — and we get to see musicians up close. Delectable food and fine wines, festive decor, and fun memorabilia abound! And we offer the audience a chance to choose the program — guests bid for their favorite aria from our guest soloists, and the winning arias are performed at the end of the concert. Our benefit concerts are a wonderful way for us to meet and get to know our audience and to express our appreciation for their support. We could not do this without your continuing contributions and encouragement.
