CBS Summer Choral Workshop 2018
Come to Zimmermann’s Coffeehouse!
Saturday, August 18, 2018
10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Come sing with Paul Flight and members of the California Bach Society! Paul Flight will discuss and rehearse choruses from Bach’s secular cantatas.
JS Bach directed the Collegium Musicum, heard in weekly concerts at Zimmermann’s Coffeehouse in Leipzig. Many of Bach’s secular cantatas were performed there. Workshop participants will sing choruses from Cantata 36, “Schwingt freudig euch empor”; Cantata 201, “Geschwinde, ihr wirbelnden Winde”; Cantata 206, “Schleicht, spielende Wellen”; Cantata 207, “Vereinigte Zwietracht der wechselnden Saiten”; and Cantata 30a, “Angenehmes Wiederau.”
As is customary for our summer workshops, scores will be provided for all the music. To work on the music in advance, download Part 1 Workshop Music. Part 2 will be available for download several weeks in advance.
