This performance is a co-sponsored event with WMHT, our 2010-2011 Twentieth Anniversary Season Media Sponsor

For its annual “Bach at New Year’s” event, the Berkshire Bach Society presents a 20th Anniversary gala orchestra program featuring three highly distinguished violinists and an exceptional flutist, collaborating to give some of JS Bach’s most exciting works – and a little Telemann gem –  that special celebratory touch.

The unusual and festive Concerto for three violins is a spectacular showpiece for our distinguished soloists. To open and close the program, the Berkshire Bach Ensemble will perform its bright and rousing hallmark versions of Brandenburg Concerti Nos. 1 and 3, with a few surprises, under the irrepressible baton of Maestro Kenneth Cooper.

Violin Soloists:
Eugene Drucker, of the Emerson String Quartet
Ani Kavafian, world-renowned concert soloist
Joseph Silverstein, Concertmaster emeritus of the Boston Symphony Orchestra
Flute Soloist: Carol Wincenc, first prize winner of the Naumburg Solo Flute Competition
