About the Choir
The California Bach Society, a 30-voice chamber chorus, has established a reputation for its interpretations of Renaissance and Baroque choral music. Specializing in historically informed performances since 1998, the choir has shared the stage with such early music luminaries as Magnificat and members of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and was a featured concert presenter at the 2000 Berkeley Early Music Festival.
The appointment of Artistic Director Dr. Paul Flight in 2006 resulted in highly successful concert seasons. Dr. Flight has enthralled audiences and critics with his thoughtful and refreshing programming. A fine voice coach, Dr. Flight has attracted talented singers, and his sensitive direction has brought new definition to the choir. A recent reviewer from San Francisco Classical Voice wrote, "The choral singing was magnificent — the sounds beguiling, the words meaningful, harmonies in tune ... These singers are very well trained."
