Texas Bach Festival Mission Statement
The mission of the Texas Bach Festival (TBF) is to champion and advance the great and timeless music of Johann Sebastian Bach and subsequent composers inspired by him in the Georgetown and greater Central Texas areas; and, by means of large- and small-scale performance, music education and outreach/collaborative events, to prolifically engage, inform and enrich citizens of all ages and the surrounding Arts community.
Bach’s sacred and secular compositions have been exponentially beloved worldwide by audiences and musicians for more than 300 years; it will be the ongoing privilege of TBF to passionately enrich the Georgetown / Austin / Central Texas cultural landscape with innovative programs and projects dedicated to "Bringing Bach to Life."
TBF is thrilled to continue providing performance opportunities to students enrolled in the Boys & Girls Club of Georgetown.
decided to postpone the 2020 Bach 4 More Festival shows until June 21-28, 2021.
TBF also is postponing the June 2020 Fundraiser and Messiah Symposium planned for August 2020. Dates for the rescheduled Fundraiser and Symposium will be announced in the future.
This one-of-a-kind choral event, led by TBF Artistic Director Barry Scott Williamson, provides registrants with a uniquely intimate musical, educational and social acquaintance with Handel’s most famous and beloved oratorio. Singers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome, without audition; we invite you to come and accomplish this unforgettable Messiah performance experience together!
