Join us for the 23rd annual Bach & Beyond Baroque Music Festival!

Bach & Beyond is a lively celebration of Baroque music, happening each June. Spirited performances of some of the greatest music ever written take place in an acoustically ideal setting. Treat yourself to the lighthearted atmosphere that has distinguished the Festival since its beginning in 1996.  Quality performances by Baroque specialists will leave you applauding for more! Though the musical genius of Johann Sebastian Bach is the foundation of the Festival, each year we include other great composers whose works reflect Bach's inspirational influence.

Planning for the Festival is still underway, but highlights of the three concert programs have been announced.  

Friday's Concert Program includes:

Franz Xaver Richter: Sinfonia con fuga

George Frideric Handel:  Trio Sonata in G-minor, Op. 2 #6
     Cheryl Bishkoff and Sarah Hamilton, Oboes

Anonymous:  Chaconne in G
     Brian Walnicki, Octave Mandolin

George Frideric Handel:  Trio Sonata in E-flat, HWV 382
     Cheryl Bishkoff and Sarah Hamilton, Oboes 

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:  Sinfonia Concertante, K. 364 
     Julie Leven, Violin; David Rose, Viola

Pre-Concert Conversation

Interested in hearing more about each concert program, how it was developed and specific information about the scheduled works?  Join Maestro Grant Cooper and selected Festival musicians for a 30-minute, in-depth conversation before each concert.  Beginning an hour before the concert's scheduled start, these special talks are held inside the theatre and are free to ticket holders. 

Subscriptions are the Best Bargain 

Consider a subscription to the 2018 Bach & Beyond Festival.  Three concerts over three days for only $51.  Individual concert tickets are $20; so, a subscription represents a $9 savings for the three concerts.

In addition to saving on the cost of tickets, subscribers are invited to attend a one-hour, post-Festival wine and cheese reception with the musicians immediately following the Sunday concert.  AND - new this year - subscribers are treated to special wine and chocolate mini-receptions that start at the conclusion of the Pre-Concert Conversations and end five minutes before the concerts on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon!
