Bach Collegium San Diego was founded in 2003 by Ruben Valenzuela with the purpose of presenting historically informed performances of music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods of history. The chorus consists of the finest singers in San Diego. Valenzuela, the music director, holds an M.A. in musicology from San Diego State University and in 2009 was a Ph.D. student at Claremont Graduate University.
Valenzuela conducted Orchestra Nova San Diego in its 2009 performances of Haydn’s Creation, and 2011 performances of Handel’s Messiah. As of 2013, Ruben is completing a PhD in Musicology at Claremont Graduate University where he is researching basso continuo practices in the New World. In addition to his duties with the BCSD, he is also the Director of the Music and Organist of St. Peters Episcopal Church in Del Mar.
