Come celebrate with CBS as we finish up our 45th season of bringing a wide range of excellent classical music to the Bay Area! Guest organist Rodney Gehrke will join Paul Flight and the choir for an afternoon of music in tribute to our namesake, J.S. Bach. Enjoy fine wine and cakes with members of the choir and raise a toast to another 45 years of music!

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.
