On the Saturday before the great composer’s 333rd (!) birthday, we’ll be celebrating Bach’s birthday from 9 am to 9 pm in the magnificent acoustics of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Staunton, Virginia. 

Bach Around the Clock represents a community partnership to celebrate Bach”s magnificent music. From sunup to sundown, you’ll hear superb string soloists, renowned organists, guitarists, pianists, choirs, and brilliant ensembles, consisting of both passionate amateurs and polished professionals, performing the inspiring and moving works of Bach, whose “perfectly proportioned structures stir primal feelings that transcend time, place, and creed, to express the inexpressible.” Or, as one philosopher says, “music sets in order what life cannot.”
