Re-Imagining The Bach Festival Campaign

Festival Campaign Banner

The Bethlehem Bach Festival has been the core of The Bach Choir’s concert season for more than 100 years. Each May we present two weekends of wonderful music in a glorious setting and continue to attract audiences from across the United States and beyond.

The Festival is our crown jewel and we want to ensure that this treasure continues to delight and inspire future generations.

While preserving cherished tradition, we also want to bring a fresh perspective to the Festival.

Key initiatives to be funded by this campaign include the involvement of young artists and audiences, the inclusion of more intimate venues where artists can interact with the audience, a Festival guest artist-in-residence, and expanded national and regional marketing and publicity.

To Accomplish Our Goals, we are conducting a three-year $1 million Campaign to raise

- $300,000 in general operating funds to cover the launching of our Festival initiatives.
Gifts of $100 to $25,000 will help us with this goal.

- $700,000 in endowment gifts to fund the new initiatives in the long term.
Gifts of $1,000 to $24,000 or naming gifts of $25,000 to $300,000 will help us with this goal.

We hope that we can count on you to add your gift and help us achieve our goal by June 30, 2017.
