      About Bach

      Founded by Andrew J. Chung in 1998, BACH began as a student group at
      UC Berkeley. The founding members sought to establish a supportive,
      challenging organization in which young musicians could develop a
      variety of skills, including leadership and teamwork as well as
      artistic virtuosity. The group was so successful, becoming known as
      "the most versatile classical music organization in the Bay Area,"
      that as its members graduated, they decided to keep the momentum
      going. Moving from a student group to a professional-level ensemble,
      BACH became a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in 2002, dedicated
      to the performance of fine classical music in the greater San
      Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley and Southern California, with
      regular tours to Modesto, Bakersfield and Long Beach. Since then, BACH
      has grown into a presenting organization, producing events for a
      varied list of performers and ensembles, all-the-while maintaining its
      own impressive concert season, as The BACH Ensemble.

      As a presenting organization, BACH promotes a variety of programs,
      including following: The Last Friday Concert Series at the ProArts
      Gallery in Oakland, a series which hosts a wide range of ensembles
      crossing artistic genres; The Josquin Singers, a vocal chamber
      ensemble specializing in liturgical music of eastern and western
      Europe; and the Seemorgh Ensemble, specializing in Iranian opera and
      choral music.

      The BACH Ensemble's repertoire includes cantatas, oratorio, concerti,
      symphonies and masses, most notably: J.S. Bach's Johannes Passion;
      W.A. Mozart's Requiem, Clarinet and Flute Concerti; Beethoven's 1st
      Symphony, and Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto. Its Opera division, first
      created in order to present a concert version of Mozart's Le Nozze di
      Figaro, went on to perform a modern staging of The Magic Flute, and
      traditional full staging of Don Giovanni.
