Festival Directors

Since 1970, the Oregon Bach Festival has celebrated the music and legacy of J.S. Bach, in an unequalled environment of performance, discovery, and community, during the refreshing early summer of the Pacific Northwest.

Our mission is to inspire the human spirit through the art of music.

Perhaps the most influential and critically acclaimed platform for Bach’s music in America, the Festival forges connections between people through a love of great music. Meet the people who make it happen.
