Description

The Bach Festival Society, the third oldest continuously-operating Bach Festival in the United States, was founded in 1935 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). In addition to the annual Bach Festival, the society includes Choral Masterworks, Visiting Artists performances, and educational and community outreach programs. The current Artistic Director and Conductor, Dr. John Sinclair, discusses a performance of Sir Michael Tippett's (1905-1998) "A Child of Our Time," in remembrance of the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht.
