About the Festival

Arguably the world’s most famous musician, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) produced over 1,100 pieces of music in his lifetime—a legacy that continues to inspire musicians and audiences around the globe. Bach Akademie Charlotte is proud to our second annual summer festival dedicated to the music of Bach and his contemporaries.

Performances are presented in what is known as "historically informed." This type of performance is about more than simply using period instruments and tuning. It is an opportunity to revisit the original inspiration for the music and to present it in an engaging, vital performance that honors the composer’s intent—as we can best understand it. In doing so, we capture the sights and sounds of another age and introduce them afresh to our modern world.

The Charlotte Bach Festival brings world-renowned professional musicians to North Carolina in order to perform this incredible music at the highest level. We invite you to join us in this exciting venture!
