The video made in 2018 poses the question 'why study the Bach Cello Suites?' Our faculty each reflect on this question and explain why they continue to work on these pieces and what it means to them to work with the adult amateurs who attend the  Workshop.  Featured are Zuill Bailey, Mike Block, Melissa Kraut and Jennifer Morsches. Recorded at College of St. Rose, Albany, in the Massry Center for the Arts.
