"The arts reflect the sophistication and enlightenment of all societies, and the Central Valley finds a treasure in the Bach Children's Choir program. These young people receive extraordinary training that is not only vital to their development as well-rounded citizens, but is crucial to the cultural growth of our metropolitan area."

-- Dr. Anna Hamre
Former Director of Choral Activities, California State University, Fresno
Artistic Director, Fresno Community Chorus Master Chorale and Coro Piccolo


Each year, the Bach Children's Choir and Youth Chorale enjoy tours and retreats that provide our choristers with wonderful musical and social experiences.

Last year was no exception as our Youth Chorale toured Costa Rica. It was a fabulous trip with meaningful performances for the Costa Rican people.

The summer of 2012 was also a tour to remember where the BCC had the opportunity to have an exchange with Fresno's Sister City - Muenster, Germany. Our families experienced home stays and concerts with the Gymnasium Paulinum Choir, as well as experienced some wonderful sight seeing and travel. See photos in our Tours and Retreats Photo Album.

Previous Tours:

Pacific International Children's Choir Festival (PICCFEST) Oregon Tour: a 6-day musical utopia presented by Eugene-based Oregon Festival Choirs in cooperation with the Oregon Bach Festival. This was a wonderful non-competitive opportunity for 350 participating choirs to focus on making great music rather than winning a trophy. Our choirs participated in rehearsals, workshops, selected Bach Festival events, and a variety of recreation and planned social events as well as performed individually and as a mass group. This was a wonderful experience that formed friendships with other singers from around the world.
