The Cal Poly Music Department will present Bach Week from Tuesday through Saturday, Jan. 16-20, with presentations and performances on campus and in Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa.
Bach Week features a range of events, including a chamber music performance on period instruments, collaborative performances of large vocal and instrumental works by students and professionals, two master classes, and a guest lecture or “Akademie.” The free demonstrations and lectures provide additional context for the performances.
At 7:30 p.m. Jan. 18, an Akademie lecture will be held, titled “Student and Teacher.” Music Professor Emeritus Clifton Swanson will lead a musical discussion on Bach’s role as a teacher and as a self-directed student of other composers. Musical examples will include works by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi and Antonio Vivaldi to be performed on Saturday’s Bach in the Mission Concert, as well as works by J.S. Bach's students to be highlighted on Friday’s chamber concert.
