Free Education Concerts are offered each spring during the St. Louis Bach Festival to students and teachers throughout the greater St. Louis area. Concerts are programmed to highlight the music of Bach in non-traditional ways to appeal more strongly to middle and high school students. This season’s St. Louis Bach Festival 2019 will offer the Bach & Baroque Education Concert and the Bach & Baroque Family Education Concert.
Events from the St. Louis Bach Festival 2007 and 2018 include: The Spiritual Bach (highlighting Bach’s organ works alongside African-American Spirituals) and Bach & Jazz (showing how the Master of Improvisation has a connection to modern jazz).
Almost 700 students have been served since this program began in 2017.
