ALL OF BACH FOR ALL OF US

THE COMPLETE BACH

Beginning in May 2024 with a performance of the majestic Mass in B Minor, the Worcester Bach Collective and guest performers will present all of the works of J. S. Bach, ending on March 21, 2035—the 350th anniversary of the Baroque master’s birth. Every season will feature a dozen concerts with music from each genre of Bach’s massive compositional output.
