Bach Festival gives Carrettin new title, contract

Daily Camera, 5/31/14

Zachary Carrettin made an immediate impact on the Boulder Boulder Bach Festival when he brought his baroque violin technique to the organization in 2011.

And Carrettin was so impressive in his first year as music director that he has been given a new title, resident music director, and a three-year contract, the festival's board of directors announced Saturday.

Carrettin, 41, recently finished his first term replacing Rick Erickson, who unexpectedly resigned as music director last summer.
