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. We start the 2019-2020 season with JS Bach’s Magnificat and Zelenka's Missa Divi Xaverii, and celebrate the holidays with a survey of Christmas in the Americas. In the winter, we present British masterpieces from Vaughan Williams and Howells, and close the year with Monteverdi’s splendid works from St. Mark’s in Venice.
