History & Mission:

The biennial Bach Festival of Charleston is dedicated to celebrating the music of one of the greatest composers ever to live.
The 2013 Festival was held Friday, March 1, through Sunday, March 3, 2013, at historic First (Scots) Presbyterian Church. It included vocal and instrumental ensembles in a chamber concert; a candelight program featuring five organ concerti; and a final concert in which a fifty-five voice chorus directed by renowned conductor Stephen Stubbs presented J.S. Bach's great Magnificat (BWV 243).

The Mission of the Bach Society of Charleston is to enrich the Charleston community through presentation of exceptionally high-quality performances of the finest classical music in the repertoire, with special emphasis on oratorio and large choral works, world-class visiting artists, and the sacred and secular music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries from the Baroque and Early Classical periods. This Mission shall be achieved through presentation of the bi-annual Bach Festival and other musical events.
