The Oakdale Leader - - NEIGHBORHOOD VALUES -

SONORA — The Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val will present their last event of this year’s fes­ti­val.

The Sonora Bach Fes­ti­val Trio will per­form at the Bach’s Brunch on Sun­day, Oct. 29, at 12:3 0 p.m. at Mt. Cal­vary Lutheran Church, Su­gar Pine. Mu­sic will in­clude se­lec­tions from Bach’s trio sonatas as well as trios by other Baroque and Clas­si­cal Com­posers.

The Brunch, pre­pared by Chef Dave In­gram, will be Moroc­can themed. Ad­vanced reser­va­tions are re­quired. Tick­ets, at $35, are avail­able at the fes­ti­val web­page Sonor­ or by call­ing the fes­ti­val of­fice at 209 536-6330.

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. Cal­vary 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. Some of the com­posers have ties to Bach.

Jo­hann Friedrich Fasch lived in Leipzig be­fore Bach, stud­ied with Bach’s pre­de­ces­sor Kuh­nau, and even founded the Col­legium Mu­sicum orches­tra from which Bach bor­rowed in­stru­men­tal­ists.
