Nelson Bach Cantata Residency

We thought Adam Chamber Music Festival followers would appreciate hearing about a wonderful weekend of music coming up in Nelson on Queens Birthday weekend. This from Chamber Music New Zealand:

The Nelson Bach Cantata Residency is a three day programme of Baroque instrumentalists and singers exploring the performance of Bach’s sacred cantatas with legendary Maestro Masaaki Suzuki, the students of Juilliard415, and Concertmaster Cynthia Roberts.

We hope you will join us to observe a programme of open rehearsals, seminars and masterclasses also featuring guest speakers Peter Walls and Samantha Owens. Please note: spaces are extremely limited for this unique experience, booking your tickets early is recommended.

The weekend opens with a welcome lunch for participants and observers on the day of the all-Bach performance by Juilliard415 with Masaaki Suzuki, and concludes with an informal concert of the residency cantatas on Mon 5 June.

Take a look at the full observer programme here.

Fully immerse yourself in the wonderful Baroque world and Bach's performance (and save), with our Full Residency Session Package, or keep it flexible and pick and choose the sessions you wish to attend.
