History & Mission:

The New England Bach Festival is the Brattleboro Music Centerís most artistically ambitious program. Since its modest beginnings in 1969 (two concerts one fall weekend), the New England Bach Festival has emerged as one of the leading celebrations of the genius of J.S. Bach.

"A music lover is lucky to hear a dozen concerts as good as this one in a lifetime." So stated one reviewer after hearing a 1988 New England Bach Festival concert. This nationally acclaimed festival is under the direction of founder Blanche Moyse, who is recognized as one of this countryís most respected interpreters of the music of J.S. Bach. Over and over again, the New England Bach Festival performances, draw both critical and audience acclaim.

Touring throughout New England each fall, the festival attracts thousands of concert-goers as well as first-class soloists and musicians who join the Blanche Moyse Chorale and the New England Bach Festival Orchestra to perform the remarkable works of J.S. Bach, as well as other composers. The festival offers audiences some of the most committed, most compelling performances of J.S. Bach's works to be heard anywhere. For more than 30 years, some of the world's leading vocal and instrumental soloists have joined to create a standard of performance that makes the New England Bach Festival, in the words of yet another reviewer "a gem of unparalleled luster."
