History & Mission:

The first of its kind, this Festival seeks to further the appreciation of the music, life and work of J.S.

Internationally recognized Bach scholar Christoph Wolff will be a featured guest speaker.
The first Middlebury Bach Festival will take place Friday-Sunday, May 6-8, 2011. The opening of the Festival will be celebrated on Friday, May 6 at 7 PM with a Gala event at the Kevin P. Mahaney ’84 Center for the Arts at Middlebury College. On Saturday, May 7 there will be interest sessions at Middlebury College throughout the day and a 6 PM pre-concert reception at Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury. Sunday, May 8 there will be performances of music by J.S. Bach in congregations throughout Middlebury. These events bring the College and town of Middlebury together, modeled after the way the famous organist/composer worked in Leipzig over 275 years ago.
