Dear Friends of Blue Hill Bach,
Blue Hill Bach’s 2021 summer festival is poised to take off, with live and in-person events scheduled from August 17 – 21. We know how much we are all looking forward to being able to gather and enjoy beautiful music. We’re closely following the trends in Covid-19 cases in our area and the CDC guidelines, and are working to ensure the health and safety of our audience, artists, and volunteers.
During the week of the festival, we plan to present live performances as well as educational events, like “Bach’s Lunch,” a masterclass for string players, and a lecture about the musical women in Bach’s world. For our concerts, we’ll be using small ensembles, performing to small audiences. So that everyone will be able to enjoy the festival—even if not in person this year—we plan to record all events.
Your support has made it possible for us to keep the music alive during the past year—last summer’s virtual festival and our online Advent calendar leading up to our holiday concert with the Zenith Ensemble. Both virtual programs and other recordings from the past are available, free of charge, on this site—click HERE to be redirected.
We’re so very grateful for the support of our audience, the business community, and organizations with which we collaborate to bring Baroque music to Downeast Maine. Please consider making a gift to help with the costs of the summer festival: bringing our musicians to Blue Hill, producing small-scale events (which will mean reduced ticket revenue), and recording festival events so that we can share them more broadly (which will increase our expenses). If you’ve made a gift recently, thank you!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 613-5454. We look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing you soon.
