Best of the Bay, San Francisco Classical Voice’s annual reader poll, has honored the American Bach Soloists, under the director of UC Davis’ Jeffrey Thomas, with two awards this year.
ABS won in the categories of Best Early Music/Baroque Ensemble and Best Festival for their American Bach Soloists Summer Festival and Academy.
The poll acknowledged numerous classical artists and ensembles throughout the Bay area. There were nominations for 110 different opera singers, over 80 chamber-music ensembles and 60 orchestras. That’s an impressive array of music makers by any measure.
