Bach Festival Society of Kalamazoo


Founded in 1946, the Bach Festival Society of Kalamazoo is dedicated to practicing, preserving and promoting the art of choral music and the legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach. Music Director James Turner leads the Bach Festival Chorus, a 65-member community choral ensemble. Besides presenting choral masterworks, the organization sponsors world-renowned guest choirs and vocal ensembles during the year. The organization is also committed to providing high quality choral music education and outreach programs including an annual High School Choral Festival, choral coaching for middle schools, master classes for college and high school students, and other free community events. Lastly, the organization honors Bach’s legacy during an annual Bach Festival Week in May. During this time, the Bach Festival collaborates with community organizations to present a Bach-Around-the-Block Organ Crawl, Young Vocalists Concert, Bach Legacy Lecture, and a spring Bach Festival Chorus Performance.
