Oregon Bach Festival
The Oregon Bach Festival has presented the masterworks of J.S. Bach, and composers inspired by his work, to audiences for nearly five decades. The annual event began as a collaboration between German conductor and oOrganist, Helmuth Rilling and former Associate Dean of the University of Oregon School Of Music, Royce Saltzman. In addition to traditional choral-orchestral masterworks, the festival also presents internationally renowned guest artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Midori, Pink Martini and Joshua Bell, and offers educational opportunities, children and family programing, and community events.
