The Bach Collegium, the region’s only early music ensemble, will perform its first concert of the season Saturday November 12th at 7:00 at Zion Lutheran Church, 2313 Hanna Street, downtown Fort Wayne.
The baroque ensemble is made up of 40 singers and 14 professional instrumentalists, playing the Baroque natural trumpet, the Baroque transverse flute and recorder, the Baroque oboe, Baroque strings as well as Baroque organ and harpsicord. Truly this is a sound unlike what
you will hear from a modern orchestra; and just watching the instrumentalists is a treat in itself. Imagine a natural trumpet, for example, which changes pitch just with the mouth and lips--no valves.
The concert marks the opening of the Collegium’s Tenth Anniversary season, and in celebration, the group will be performing favorite exerpts from J.S. Bach’s B minor Mass, his Christmas and Easter Oratorios, and pieces fo Brahms and Telemann. In keeping with the
style of the era, the singers will perform in various positions within the church--sometimes in front, sometimes in the galleries, all designed to reinforce the structure of the movement of music.
Daniel Reuning, the group’s Artistic Director will conduct the Bach and Patricia Kennedy, Associate Director, will conduct the Brahms from the west gallery, with Michael Hollman perfmorning on Zion’s Grand Casavant pipe organ.
Details are online at www.bachcollegium.org or on Facebook at Bach Collegium--a Baroque Music Ensemble, or by phoning 485-2143. Tickets available online or at the door--$15 OR a season pass for $80.
