One of the country's premier Baroque choral and orchestral groups – with a nine-concert season and free Talking Bach lecture series – the Washington Bach Consort has earned rave reviews from the Washington Post, which has called it "one of America's finest musical ensembles." The Consort has made critically acclaimed European tours and, locally, has performed regularly with the National Symphony Orchestra, Opera Lafayette, Folger Consort, and the Post Classical Ensemble. But it isn't just interested in performing Bach; it's interested in "giving Bach." That's why it also offers free or low-cost music education through the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative, Sitar Arts Center, and THEARC. Reaching over 2,500 underserved students annually with Bach to School, a music education program that teaches kids to sharpen their listening skills and improve their musical literacy, and offering adults a free Noontime Cantata Concert Series that enlivens the lunch hour in downtown DC, the Consort helps listeners of all ages appreciate the beauty of Baroque music. Giving Bach is something you can do as well.
