California Bach Society is a 30-voice chamber choir specializing in Renaissance and Baroque music, presenting four concerts each year in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Berkeley. Welcome to our 48th season, 2018-2019. We start the year with JS Bach’s Missa Brevis in A; then mark the holidays with 500 years of an Italian Christmas. In the winter, we present Rachmaninoff’s stunning All Night Vigil and finish the year with two Italian masters in Vienna. 

SFCV Best of the Bay!

We were thrilled to be named Best Choral Group and Best Early Music/Baroque Ensemble in SFCV's  2017-2018 Best of the Bay! Thank you for your confidence and support — we look ahead to a wonderful season of celebrations!
