Review for Miami Bach Society Inc, Coral Gables, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is difficult to give an unbiased review of this organization, because our assessment is so profoundly affected by the many years' of wonderful Baroque and Early music we have been privileged to hear, performed by world class ensembles and soloists, brought to local venues by the Bach Society. As audience members we have had the opportunity often to converse and interact with the performers at post concert receptions, and as volunteers, we have been able to engage with our performing guests, both foreign and domestic, away from the concert hall. From the mundane tasks of transporting them to and from the airport, or looking after their centuries old instruments, to more esoteric pursuits like trips to the Everglades, the Venetian Pool or a fortuitous encounter with 4 mother manatees and their babies in the Coral Gables waterway, to shopping trips at Best Buy, we have enjoyed the company of intelligent, appealing artists in their capacities, inevitably, as tourists from Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain, England and domestic zip codes physically and culturally distant and different from Miami. As the Bach Society enters a new year with new leadership, an ambitious but realistic outreach program and a line up of wonderful concerts during the annual Tropical Baroque Festival, we are pleased to do what we can to help insure that they will be bringing great music to our community for many more years......Joel and Emily Rosenthal
