Bach PLUS Weekend

From May 17 to 20 (Friday evening to Monday at noon), the CAMMAC Music Centre will be celebrating spring at CAMMAC with the Bach PLUS weekend  – three days of lovely music among friends in a beautiful and relaxed setting. Come join us for a prelude to the summer at the Music Centre!

We are happy to welcome for the first time in 20 years to the CAMMAC Music Centre, Daniel Taylor, as guest conductor. Daniel Taylor is one of the most famous countertenors in the world! He came to CAMMAC as a young chorister and later, at the invitation of his mentor Christopher Jackson, as choral conductor. Everyone remembers with much emotion and admiration the presence of Christopher Jackson at the Bach Weekend at CAMMAC.

Singers will get a chance to work on their vocal technique and German pronunciation. Do you play the recorder? You too can dive into the music of Bach, along with the excellent recorder and baroque flute player Francis Colpron. In addition, a first at the Bach PLUS weekend: we invite recorder players to come and play with us the Kyrie of Bach’s Missa Brevis, a sublime work that meets the eternal – a sure delight for CAMMAC music lovers!

If you’re also coming for chamber music, our teachers Myriam Bernard (piano), Claire Marchand (flute) and Donald Pistolesi (cello) are looking forward to working with you. And new this year, Myriam Bernard will also offer a piano class and there will also be an active listening class with Claire Marchand. And to keep you in top shape, you can relax or re-energize with yoga courses!
