Join us for the 24th 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 features:

Grant Cooper: Prologue to Dido and Aeneas (reconstructed)

Henry Purcell:  Dido and Aeneas
Belinda: Lydia Evans
     Dido: Janet Brown
     Aeneas: Steven Stull
     Woman, Sorceress, Spirit: Dawn Pierce
     Sailor: Nathaniel McEwen
     Witches: Miriah Reyes, Maria Parker, Kyle Botsford

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. 

Special Opening Reception
patrons are invited to help us kick off this year's Festival with chocolates and a little bubbly at a Special Opening Reception on Friday evening at 6:15pm in the Opera House's Reception/Concessions room located on the ground floor of Village Hall.
