A three-day residency over Queens' Birthday weekend in beautiful Nelson - this is an opportunity for singers and Baroque instrumentalists to explore the performance of Bach and, in particular, his sacred cantatas with Maestro Masaaki Suzuki, who is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest living exponents of this repertoire.

Participants will work alongside the extraordinarily talented musicians of Juilliard415 under the leadership of Cynthia Roberts in preparing several Bach cantatas for performance.

The weekend will include an all-Bach performance by Juilliard415 with Masaaki Suzuki and will conclude with an informal concert of the residency cantatas.

Observer Programme:
Enjoy a programme of open rehearsals, seminars and masterclasses with Masaaki Suzuki, Juilliard415 students, faculty members and esteemed speakers Samantha Owens and Peter Walls.

The weekend opens with a welcome lunch for participants and observers and concludes with an informal concert by the residency's participants on Monday 5 June. Visit CMNZ website for the full programme details.
