2019 - 2020 - Season Announcement!

The Minnesota Bach Ensemble proudly announces its new Artistic Director Mischa Santora!

Mischa will launch the 8th season of the Minnesota Bach Ensemble with works by J.S. Bach and others from the Bach family, featuring soprano Lihn Kauffman and flutist Adam Kuenzel. Linh will solo again in February, along with mezzo-soprano Nerea Berraondo and soprano Christina Christensen, in the tumultuous Giulio Cesare in Egitto by Handel. MBE will then celebrate spring with Italian baroque music and the return of violinist Jorja Fleezanis, the former and long-time concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra. She will perform selections from Vivaldi’s beloved Four Seasons. Oboist Basil Reeve and Tom Turner will also solo with the orchestra, performing selections by Marcello and Vivaldi.

Tickets will go on sale in August, and we look forward to sharing this beautiful music with you!


The Minnesota Bach Ensemble is a professional chamber orchestra dedicated to performing the music of J.S. Bach and his contemporaries. The ensemble explores other composers of the Baroque and early Classical periods yet always returns to the intense beauty, emotionalism, and inspiration of J.S. Bach. We seek to engage and enrich the lives of our audiences and musicians with each performance, presenting masterworks as well as overlooked gems in the repertoire.
