In addition to in-depth coachings with masters of their particular instruments, participants work together with all faculty members, gaining the perspectives of eminent and highly acclaimed professional artists from a variety of disciplines.

During the course of the program, students and faculty present public concerts as part of the American Bach Soloists Festival & Academy including programs of chamber music, “Academy-in-Action” performances, a concert-version Baroque opera or oratorio and annual performances of Bach’s Mass in B Minor.
