Bach Aria Soloists
February 16, 2010
Bach Aria Soloists [BAS] is one of the more exquisite "hidden gems" in the Kansas City cultural and civic landscape. After 28 years in New York City and 4 in Los Angeles, I welcomed the opportunity this smaller city offers music lovers to enjoy top-flight performances in intimate settings not easily found in larger cities on either coast. BAS is at the top of the list when it comes to their seasonal "hauskoncerts" as well as their performances that reach out to larger, diverse audiences at holiday time. Lead by Elizabeth Suh-Lane, a world-class violin virtuoso, BAS appeals to the highest brow yet in a socially relaxed way that brings people together for an evening of great music and song. BAS performances introduce new, up and coming talent to local audiences while commanding the respect and attention of renowned Bach scholars.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
creating and sustaining in us "little folk" an awareness of Bach's brilliant impact on the music world and its great artists over the past centuries.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the intimate proximity that BAS affords its audiences vis-a-vis its musicians and artists during and after its hauskoncerts.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
sustain a consistently superior if not world-class "ensemble" of soloists; establish a BAS scholoarship; hire a "Sol Hurok" and hit the international tour stages.
