Johann Sebastian Bach in the Baroque Era and in Our Time

A four-week institute for twenty-five school teachers, held in Germany on the music of J. S. Bach and its cultural, intellectual, and religious contexts.

Moravian College’s Summer Institute for Teachers 2012 is a four-week institute for classroom teachers on J.S. Bach in the Baroque Era and in Our Time to take place in Germany. The goal of the institute is to provide classroom teachers with the 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 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 Potsdam, 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.
