An opportunity for undergrads to perform with professional musicians
In a cyclical partnership with regional universities, Bach Akademie Charlotte offers a tuition-free opportunity for undergraduate vocal students to participate in rehearsals and concerts alongside professional members of the Bach Akademie Cantata Choir and Orchestra. The curriculum for Bach Akademie Scholars includes:
Our next Choral Scholars opportunity is April 18-23, 2022 (Tuesday–Saturday), as part of our Spring concerts. We will be featuring modern-day premieres of musical motets from the two-volume collection Florilegium Portense (published in 1618 and 1621), integral to the Thomaskirche’s repertoire in Leipzig during J.S. Bach’s tenure as Thomaskantor. We will perform these motets alongside similarly scored works by Bach in a program crafted to highlight his role as educator. The performances will feature an ensemble of 18 professional singers and continuo band, as well as four Choral Scholars from area colleges and universities.
