History & Mission:

The Peoria Bach Festival is held annually during the first week of June at Trinity Lutheran Church, Peoria. Since its founding in 2003 by Trinity's Cantor Martin Dicke and Dr. John Jost, Director of Choral Activities at Bradley University, the Peoria Bach Festival has quickly grown from a local arts event into a significant regional festival. It seeks to not only showcase Peoria's own musicians, but also to attract national and international talent. Trinity's attractive gothic architecture and reverberant acoustics combined with its historical and religious roots provide a perfect setting for a celebration of Bach's music.

The Peoria Bach Festival is funded primarily by invidual donors, but requires additional assistance from local businesses and the community in order to remain in operation. The Peoria Bach Festival has received grants from the Illinois Arts Council through the Community Foundation of Illinois.
