As of Tuesday, February 27, the Festival Schedule has filled up, with a wonderful cornucopia of Bach selections for the audience to enjoy.  Our musicians include young Suzuki violinists performing for the first time, professionals from the Madison Symphony, UW-Madison music students and faculty, solo vocalists and choirs, adult amateurs, a special guest pianist flying all the way from North Carolina…and even a surprise appearance by Glenn Gould!

BATC is thrilled to connect with the Chazen Museum of Art.  Three ensembles will represent the Festival on March 4th, with an all-Bach program including the Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, Bach selections from Suzuki Books 1-1, and the dramatic Harpsichord Concerto in D Minor, BWV 1052.

This concert is free and open to the public, but space is limited.

Join us, in person in Gallery III, or via livestream on the museum’s website.
