We have about 16 vocalists and 3 instrumentalists, under the age of 18, who need piano accompanists for our Junior Bach Festival this year. The Festival expects to present 12 unique concerts featuring highly skilled young musicians. Auditions will take place on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, February 2 and 3, and concerts will take place between March 22 and March 31, 2019. Locations of concerts can probably be limited to San Francisco or Berkeley, although 4 of 12 concerts can also take place in Menlo Park area. It is likely that about 40% of students who audition will be accepted for concerts. It is likely that most accompanists will be requested only to play in CONCERTS, since students will be permitted to have their "adult" accompanists to be with them during auditions.
