What is Bach Festival?
The Bach Festival speaks to the core of who we are as a school and brings our community together! For those of you who don't know, our school's name, "The Musical Offering," is a collection of canons, fugues, and other pieces of music by J.S. Bach, all based on a single musical theme. Every year we come together for the Bach Festival to celebrate our school and community.
General Infomtion
The Bach Festival is split into 3 Parts:
  • Student Bach Festival: Students workshop a piece for 15 min. with a MO teacher other than their own.
  • Faculty Bach Recital: Faculty members perform a recital with works by Bach or his contemporaries
  • Student Bach Recital: Students who participated in the Student Bach Festival can perform their piece they workshopped at the Bach Festival for this recital.
