Weimar Bach Academy

One of Bach's most important ambassadors at a historic location: Helmuth Rilling invites international choir members and instrumentalists to come to Weimar to join him and other handpicked instructors in studying Johann Sebastian Bach‘s Weimar Cantatas. The participants not only have a chance to work with one of today's greatest Bach conductors, the course also enables them to gain insight into a wide cross-section of Bach's Cantatas. During rehearsals Helmuth Rilling is assisted by experienced choir and instrumental ensemble instructors who provide participants with intensive coaching. Six concerts will conclude the rehearsal phase.
