Bach Collegium San Diego (Vocal & Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 2003 - San Diego, California, USA

The Bach Collegium San Diego (= BCSD) was founded in 2003 by Ruben Valenzuela with the purpose of enriching San Diego's music community with historically informed performances of the Renaissance, Baroque, and in particular the vocal works of J.S. Bach.

Many of its instrumentalists and vocalists of BCSD have longstanding experience with such ensembles as the Academy of Ancient Music (UK), American Bach Soloists, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Festival Ensemble Stuttgart (Bachakademie Stuttgart), Oregon Bach Festival Chorus, and the Philharmonia Chorale.

During its first six seasons, the BCSD has earned an impressive reputation, captivating diverse audiences by their unique style and highly expressive and provocative approach to the Renaissance and Baroque repertoire and beyond. The ensemble regularly participates in an international tour to Mexico City with performances at the Festival Internacional del Órgano Barroco. The ensemble has brought many historically informed first performances to San Diego for the first time. Such works include George Frideric Handel’s Theodora and Messiah, J.S. Bach’S St. John Passion (BWV 245) and B minor Mass (BWV 232), and Monteverdi 1610 Vespers.
