Welcome to our 112th Bethlehem Bach Festival!  As the information for each performance, including our 2019 Festival Artist-in-residence, becomes available, we will post it here and in other media. We welcome you to the heart of our season and hope the glorious music offers you joy, comfort, inspiration and peace as only the music of J.S. Bach can.

Our largest event of the year takes place in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on the campus of Lehigh University and on the historic grounds of the Moravian community. Glorious tradition, spirited performances, festival premieres…music for you. It’s our distinct pleasure to welcome so many of you to Bethlehem every year!

Our 112th Bethlehem Bach Festival in 2019 will be – as  ever – a time of reunions, annual renewal and contemplation and sharing this exquisite music as a community. Please make your plans – and your reservations! – now and be part of this community, sharing your passion for Bach and celebrating this uplifting season.

“It’s not only the history of the Festival but the personal history that so many of the performers and members of the audience have with it that gives the weekend a very wonderful and sentimental atmosphere.”

— Karen B., longtime Festival attendee
