Bach Collegium San Diego (BCSD), one of the country's leading ensembles, will perform at the BachFest 2024 in June in Leipzig, Germany.

  • Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland, BWV 62
  • Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ, BWV 91
  • Christum wir sollen loben schon, BWV 121

BachFest is a celebration of all things Johann Sebastian Bach and his contribution to early music. The festival, which features the best ensembles from around the globe, is dubbed “the Olympics of Bach music lovers” though the environment is more celebratory and collaborative than competitive. 

Bach Collegium San Diego engages audiences with accessible, historically informed performances and educational programs featuring repertoire from the Renaissance, Baroque, and early Classical eras. The ensemble was founded in 2003 by Music Director Ruben Valenzuela to diversify the musical offerings of the San Diego community.
