Bach Week Festival

Guest singers to brighten ‘Bachtoberfest’ benefit concert

Two acclaimed young classical singers from the East Coast will join veteran musicians from the venerable Bach Week Festival, held each spring in Evanston since 1974, for a concert featuring music of J.S. Bach at the organization’s second annual “Bachtoberfest” fundraiser, to be held 6–8:30 p.m.

Bach Week Festival to open with flourish of brass and organ

A flourish of brass and organ music will launch the 37th annual Bach Week Festival in Evanston on Friday, April 23. The opening concert and those on Sunday, April 25, and Friday, April 30, will be devoted exclusively to the music of Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach — with one notable exception.
