The fi­nal event of the 41st Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val will fea­ture a brunch of Moroc­can and Mediter­ranean dishes ac­com­pa­nied by the Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val Trio. Guests will help them­selves to the buf­fet con­sist­ing of var­ied Moroc­can and Mediter­ranean fare. The Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val Trio will pro­vide mu­sic. The event, held at Mt. Cal- vary Lutheran Church, was se­lected, ac­cord­ing to fes­ti­val board mem­ber Bar­bara Fish be­cause “it of­fers the best of many things for our au­di­ences: it is lo­cated in the woods of the Sier­ras at only 14 miles from Sonora. And at 4700 feet the tem­per­a­ture is ideal.”

The Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val Trio con­sists of Janet Telford, flute; San­dra Betti, flute; and Ralph Rether­ford, cello. All three came from out of the area at sep­a­rate times, met here, re­al­ized they all had sim­i­lar skills and in­ter­ests and formed their trio. They play reg­u­larly in the Cen­tral Mother Lode at a va­ri­ety of events and venues.

For this event the Trio will play se­lec­tions from Bach’s Trio Sonatas as well as Trio Sonatas of other Baroque com­posers Fasch, Loeil­let, Tele­mann, Tar­tini. Also on the pro­gram will be mu­sic by classical com­posers Haydn and Mozart.

Chef Dave In­gram of Tuolumne County will pre­pare the Brunch menu. A pop­u­lar caterer in the Cen­tral Mother Lode, with ex­pe­ri­ence cook­ing at restau­rants in the Bay Area and lo­cally as Pas­try Chef at the Black Oak Casino, Chef Dave will be pre­par­ing a Mediter­ranean/ Moroc­can-themed menu. Items in­clude zuc­chini-orso salad, spinach-mush­room-pro­volone frit­tata, as­sorted chicken sausages, and grilled Moroc­can chicken breasts. Veg­eta­bles in­clude roasted red pota­toes with onions in olive oil and grilled Tus­can-style veg­gies. The meal will be­gin and end with fruit: A fresh­fruit salad with honey-yo­gurt dress­ing starts the meal and it fin­ishes with peach cob­bler.

“This is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to hear beau­ti­ful mu­sic in a beau­ti­ful set­ting,” added Fish. “The venue is small and in­ti­mate so you are close to the mu­si­cians. And with the won­der­ful food, beau­ti­ful mu­sic and quiet for­est it’s a per­fect place to spend a Sun­day af­ter­noon.”

Ready to per­form on Sun­day, Oct. 29, the Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val Trio con­sists of Janet Telford, flute; San­dra Betti, flute; and Ralph Rether­ford, cello.
