Minnesota Bach Festival

May 13 – 21, 2023

The Minnesota Bach Festival will begin with a Bach and Friends Workshop, followed by a statewide series of Mobile Mini-Concerts featuring artists from a wide variety of genres. The celebration will culminate with performances of the Magnificat by J.S. Bach and his son, C.P.E. Bach – two masterpieces by two generations – that will inspire and delight audiences with their joyful, artful spirit.

Come spend the day singing and playing selections of Vivaldi’s Gloria led by BSM Associate Artistic Director Marco Real-d’Arbelles who will provide tips and tricks to sound more “Baroque.”
