Hailed for “top-shelf performances” at its debut in January 2013 by the Pioneer Press, and called a "bright spot on the horizon" by the Villager, the Minnesota Bach Ensemble creates emotionally charged experiences for its audience, sourcing Johann Sebastian Bach for the core of its repertoire. Led by conductor Andrew Altenbach and comprising members of Minnesota’s most prestigious orchestras along with vocal virtuosi, this ensemble is born of a shared passion for excellence in the performance of orchestral and vocal music that is visceral, energetic, informed, and fearless.
