Colorado Bach Ensemble is very excited to announce our plans for the 2022-23 Bach competition for aspiring vocal soloists interested in the music of J. S. Bach. Following a preliminary round of recorded solo submissions due February 19, 2023, four to eight finalists will be chosen to participate in our LIVE final round concert on May 20, 2023 in Colorado. This concert will feature the singers on Bach’s Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben (Heart and mouth and deed and life), BWV 147, as well as other favorite arias. One First Prize Winner and one Runner-Up will be selected at the conclusion of the concert, winning $2,000 and $1,000 respectively. In addition to the cash prizes, each will have a chance to perform with CBE in future seasons at the discretion of the Artistic Director.
