BachFest Marquette scheduled to begin this month

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is proud to present BachFest Marquette, a season-long collaborative celebration of classical music, the life and legacy of famed composer J.S. Bach, and the arts in the U.P.

The Festival, which takes place from September to December 2018, features 10 unique, family-friendly events intended to inspire and engage listeners of all ages with the power of classical music, while supporting the musicians and organizations who have come to define the arts in our region. Featured events include collage concerts, recitals, performances by the Marquette Symphony Orchestra and Marquette Choral Society, a jazz performance at Ore Dock Brewing Company, a community “Organ Hop”, and a pop-up youth art show to be held in the newly-renovated Marquette Arts and Culture Center upon its reopening in November.

Most events are free and open to the public, made possible in part thanks to the support of the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. For more information about BachFest Marquette, visit https://www.marquette365.com/event/bachfest-marquette/ or https://www.facebook.com/BachFestMQT/.
