Our People

Since 1970, during the early summer of the Pacific Northwest, Oregon Bach Festival has celebrated the music and legacy of J.S. Bach, in an unequaled environment of performance, discovery, and community. Perhaps the most influential and critically acclaimed platform for Bach’s music in America, the Festival forges connections between people through a love of great music.

Our mission is to inspire the human spirit through the art of music by providing the highest level of performances and educational opportunities.

Please meet the people who make it happen.
