2019-2020 Season

Dear Friends,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

What a great season we’ve just had, and what terrific support from our audience!

As we sail into our 37th year, we would like to assure you that we have no other goal than to bring you more of the same world class music-making you have always experienced with the Dallas Bach Society. At every concert you will be able to say, along with the Dallas Morning News, “We were in the presence of genius.

Our season this year, “BACH &”, will explore the connections between the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and the other great figures of the Baroque. They are many, and those of you who attend our concerts understand the vast wealth of amazing music we have to choose from.

We begin in October with a concert of madrigals featuring the sensual music of Claudio Monteverdi, clearly the most important composer of his time. Our Baroque Christmas concert series begins in Advent, infusing the upcoming holiday season with beauty and grace, and includes our beloved tradition of German Caroling. The Messiah at the Meyerson Symphony Center continues in all its glory, with an excellent group of returning and new soloists, and of course we will have the popular sing-along Messiah at Zion Lutheran Church. Celebrate New Year’s Eve with us as we present highlights from the Baroque Opera, where DBS has led the field in the Metroplex for over twenty years.

The New Year begins with audience favorite, tenor Dann Coakwell in recital as part of our expanded House Concert Series, which will include an exciting collaboration with the Dallas Institute for the Humanities and Culture. Springtime in Dallas brings a concert of smaller, lyrical Handel works, followed by the dramatic Saint John Passion, with Mr. Coakwell returning as Evangelist, scheduled for recording!

Visit our pages for our traditional concerts and house concerts to see a detailed description for each concert. Please read them over and make plans for how you would like to spend this year with us. We have increased the variety of our subscription offerings to give you more choices, with no price increases, hoping to enable more of you to become part of our subscriber family.

We so appreciate your support! Your season subscription is the best way to keep early music alive and vibrant in North Texas, and of course all additional donations are tax-deductible (to the extent permitted by law). Your presence makes our Dallas Bach Society concerts the place to be!

Best regards,

James Richman,
Artistic Director
