History & Mission:

A week-long celebration of the work and life of J. S. Bach: Lectures, master-classes, demonstrations, concerts on period instruments. The festival has been organized by Christine Rutledge of the UI School of Music faculty. All events in the festival (see full schedule below) are free and open to the public.

Rutledge said, "An important aspect of this festival is to present a broad spectrum of vocal and instrumental works by Bach, and that those works be performed on period instruments and by the most talented early music performers from around the United States. An equally important aspect of the festival is to 'marry' performances with scholarly influences.
Throughout the week our guest artists and scholars will have direct contact with our students in the form of lectures and master classes."
