Johann Sebastian Bach: Celebrating the 325th Anniversary of Bach's Birth in Germany

A four-week school teacher institute in Germany for twenty-five participants to explore the life, music, and intellectual milieu of composer Johann Sebastian Bach.

Moravian College's Summer Institute for Teachers 2010 is a four-week institute for classroom teachers on J. S. Bach in the Age of the Baroque and the Enlightenment to take place in Germany. The goal of the Institute is to provide classroom teachers with methods and tools to integrate the music of Bach and the world of the Enlightenment into elementary, secondary and high school classrooms. The Institute will demonstrate how to use Bach as a vehicle for the teaching the social, cultural, intellectual and religious changes taking place in Europe from the 17th to 18th centuries. By situating the Institute in Eisenach, Leipzig, and Postdam, participants will be immersed in the very places where Bach lived, and will have access to the finest cultural and scholarly resources on Bach. Internationally known scholars will present lectures and workshops that describe the relationship of Bach's life and music to the world around him, spanning the late Baroque era to the Age of Enlightenment.
