Bach and Brahms Festival
One of the most exciting and features of our 2011-12 season will be a four-concert Bach-Brahms Festival next month. Four complete concerts will be devoted to the immortal music of Johann Sebastian Bach and Johannes Brahms.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral – Brightmusic’s long-time home, and one of the finest acoustical facilities for chamber music anywhere – will be the host venue for the Festival. The concerts will be held on Saturday evening, May 26; Sunday afternoon, May 27; Tuesday evening, May 29 and Thursday evening, May 31.
Admission to each concert will be $10 per person (students with ID free of charge). Audience members who purchased Season Memberships will be admitted to all four concerts by showing their Season pass. You can also purchase a four-concert Festival pass either online, at our next concert, or at the festival.
