On the same weekend Uncle Dad’s Art Collective brought songs of Stevie Wonder, Chico Performances teamed up with School Of The Arts to present the 2018 Chico Bach Festival.

The Bach Festival offered a different experience called Vivaldi and Beyond in the Zingg Recital Hall. The festival lasted three nights and each night presented a different performance.

The concert featured pieces by Johann S. Bach, Antonio Vivaldi and Domenico Scarlatti, meant to spotlight classical musical works from Italy.

Opening the concert with a piece by Scarlatti, Robert Bowman played the harpsichord on all six selections. He was joined in different pieces by Matt Raley on violin, Burke Schuchman on cello and Yael Ronen and Jeremiah Bills on flutes.

Dara Scholz, a vocal instructor, joined for the grand finale. Scholz, a soprano (the highest female singing register), performed two recitative and two arias by Bach with accompaniment from Raley, Bowman and Schuchman.

The Bach Festival was also put on in part due to SOTA, which is responsible for many other shows that are put on here on campus. SOTA is a student-run music and entertainment production program, with divisions for event production, live music recording and audiovisual production, artist development/A&R, social media, branding and marketing, and contract and business administration.

The past few weeks SOTA has held events such as “Sandwiches and Serenades” at Ike’s Sandwiches and “Chico Unplugged” at Madison Bear Garden.

SOTA has many more musical performances still planned this semester– check the website for upcoming events.
