Okanagan Festival Singers Present ‘Bach to Bach’
Presenting an Okanagan premier, the Okanagan Festival Singers and invited soloists go Bach to Bach as
they vocalize the beautiful Latin text and rich harmonies of a famous father/son duo: Baroque superstar
Johann Sebastian Bach and his son Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. J.S. Bach’s Mass in G minor is a Missa
Brevis and features the first two movements, Kyrie and Gloria, of the full mass . This work shines with
the interwoven themes and rich contrapuntal writing that brings his brilliance to life. Magnificat by
C.P.E. Bach is a contrast to his father’s music, featuring progressive stylistic changes, unique
modulations, and an unusual use of melody and texture. The mood here is joyful, glorious and
Adding an exciting counterpoint to the voices, the audience-pleasing Okanagan Festival Camerata
Orchestra, led by Nancy DiNovo, will accompany OFS and also perform the very popular Concerto in D
minor by Vivaldi. This is an evening you won’t want to miss!
