Café Zimmermann in Leipzig provided the backdrop for a series of now legendary public concerts led by J.S. Bach.

Alexander Weimann is one of the world’s leading interpreters of Baroque music. A multiple JUNO and GRAMMY nominee, he is conductor of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra.

Soile Stratkauskas found her passion in the pure and eloquent sound of the wooden flute. She is the founder of the Victoria Baroque Players.

Chloe Meyers is concertmaster of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra. She played first violin on a JUNO award-winning recording of Handel arias featuring soprano Karina Gauvin.

Beiliang Zhu won 1st prize at the 2012 International Bach Competition in Leipzig. She was the first string player to have received this honor on a Baroque instrument.
