2018 Workshop Ticket

Registration is now closed.

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 214, “Tönet, ihr Pauken”; 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 Workshop Music. (Workshop participants who downloaded Part 1 before July 24 can now download Part 2 Workshop Music, which has just the last two choruses.)
