BACH IN TIME
Presented by: Washington Bach Consort 

Music from three centuries ago can be awesome, particularly when the composer himself, the young J.S. Bach, travels through time to teach, sing, and invite the audience to help him make music. This fun, interactive presentation targeting 2nd-4th graders teaches solid musical basics, introduces musical instruments and provides follow-up classroom materials.

THE WUNDERKIND PROJECT
Presented by: Washington Bach Consort
The Washington Bach Consort’s newest education program is the Wunderkind Projekt, designed to inspire your music students! (A wunderkind is a person who achieves great success when relatively young.) Professional musicians and educators from the Bach Consort will visit your school and discuss an upcoming Noontime Cantata concert which students are then invited to attend. A Consort musician will return to your school a week later to continue the discussion and reinforce the concert experience. What will your wunderkinds accomplish after experiencing Bach’s music? Higher test scores? A new found appreciation for the arts? A 21st century Bach Revival?! We strive to create an appreciation of early music that will last a lifetime.

Future Events
 

A GOLDBERG VARIATION (Winter Lottery)
Presented by: Washington Bach Consort
The future of music is at risk, and only a distant future relative of one of Bach's students can save it. Dr. John Goldberg travels back from the 22nd century to teach children about a precious resource that we have in our time that has gone missing in his: classical music. With a focus on the music of J.S. Bach, this program will teach children about many of the important musical building blocks, and will empower them to change the future of music through their own listening and appreciation.
