Historically Informed Performance Group Launches

We are pleased to announce the formation of Charlotte Bach Akademie. Arguably the world’s most famous musician, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) produced over 1,100 pieces of music in his lifetime, a legacy that continues to inspire musicians and audiences around the globe. A “Bach Akademie” is a German term, and indeed a tradition, for a collection of musical events and other activities focused on the study of Bach and his influence in his time and ours.

Bach Akademie Charlotte will be dedicated to performing the works of Bach and his comtemporaries with historically informed performances. A historically informed performance is about more than simply using period instruments and tuning. It is an opportunity to revisit the original inspiration for the music and to present it in an engaging, vital performance that honors the composer’s intent—as we can best understand it. In doing so, we capture the sights and sounds of another age and introduce them afresh to our modern world.

Bach Akademie will do this primarily through four initiatives:

  • BA|Charlotte Cantata Choir
  • Cantata Series
  • Emerging Artist Program
  • Charlotte Bach Festival

Bach Akademie Charlotte is a professional 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
