Dear Friends of Blue Hill Bach,
As we head into a new year, we’re savoring memories of a triumphant season so far: three sold-out summer festival concerts, from a delightful evening of works by a young J.S. Bach and his predecessor Buxtehude, to a highly entertaining program of madrigals, canzonas, and ballos at David’s Folly Farm, to the rousing finale, Handel’s Israel in Egypt.
Our December performance of Handel’s Messiah, presented in collaboration with Baroque Orchestra of Maine under the direction of George Emlen to a capacity audience, got everyone in holiday spirits.
For our annual celebration of Bach’s birthday on Friday, March 22, Kevin Birch will present a program about the clavichord and the private side of Bach’s musical life.
The 2024 summer festival, scheduled for July 14-20, is in the planning stages. Stay tuned!
We couldn’t do all this without the support we receive from our many volunteers and donors. This past summer, more than 60 community members stepped up to help with the festival, hosting and feeding our visiting musicians, greeting the audience at events, moving instruments and equipment, getting publicity out, and singing in the chorus.
Even with sold-out concerts, ticket revenue covers less than half of our expenses. Your support makes it possible for us to keep the music alive! Please consider making a gift to our annual campaign to support our efforts to bring this wonderful music to the Blue Hill Peninsula and beyond.
