The Music Department is pleased to announce that “In the Footsteps of Bach,” taught in Germany, will be offered again in Block 4, 2019. After a week of coursework in Lüneburg (a northern German city where Bach spent two years as a choirboy), the class will travel to 5 cities and towns where Bach lived and worked. In each place we will study the music that he wrote at the time. We will attend many concerts concluding with a grand performance of the Christmas Oratorio in St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, the same church where it was performed for the first time in 1734.

Please contact Michael Grace (710 440-3151 or or Ofer Ben-Amots ( for more information or to express interest in joining this stimulating and music-filled course.

And please note that applications for financial aid will go live on Summit on March 1st. Financial aid for abroad classes runs out quickly, so those who apply early are most likely to get it. If a student is eligible, all the course expenses – room, board and transportation, may be covered by financial aid. Contact Michael Grace (719 440-3151 or by email) for more information.
