SUPPORT LBS & JOIN BACH FRIENDS

2016 BACH FRIENDS BROCHURE

Bach Friends -  Come and join us…

Each year we have to raise in excess of £50,000 from grants and donations, increasing that amount year on year. You can help us to achieve that by becoming a Bach Friend.

Bach’s music touches all our lives. From the majestic organ works to the beauty and spirituality of the Passions, Oratorios and Cantatas, from the grace and elegance of the chamber music, to the brilliance, excitement and joy in the instrumental pieces. Through all of these Bach’s music speaks to all humanity and his own story will chime with many today. LBS is devoted to telling Bach’s story all year round; it is a story that involves some surprising personalities, spans the centuries, and opens up many new avenues to explore.  Come with us….
