Welcome to the Lake Chelan Bach Fest!

The 34th season of the Lake Chelan Bach Fest will be held July 10th through July 18th, 2015. The Board and Bach Fest volunteers are working hard to bring you 9 days of wonderful music ranging from classical to jazz to show tunes, chamber music to full orchestra and chorus.  We know you'll find it very entertaining!  We're always looking for fresh ideas, so if you're interested in joining the Board or volunteering, please contact us at info@bachfest.org.

At Vin du Lac

The Bach Fest String Quartet will be playing at local Wineries again in 2015. Click here for that schedule and locations.

In addition to the above, there will be a Young Musicians' concert and the Opening Festival Concert, featuring guest artists and the Bach Fest String Quartet, on Sunday.

We'll have our ever-popular one-hour noon concerts Monday through Friday, as well as morning chamber music and programs for children in the beautiful St. Andrews courtyard.

The full orchestra and chorus perform at Friday night's 'Classics Concert''Pops in the Park' at Riverwalk Park, with a lighter 'pops' program, will bring our 2015 season to a close on Saturday night. This year for the first time, 'Pops in the Park' was offered free of charge, and we hope to be able to do so again in 2015.  Our beautiful Riverwalk Pavilion venue is right on the river with seating on the sloping grass lawn, so bring the whole family, along with your blankets and/or lawn chairs, to maximize your viewing and listening experience.

Tickets for the 2015 season will be available at the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, across from Safeway at 102 E Johnson, Chelan.

Make This A "Friend-Raising" Year!

A large part of the Bach Fest Board’s job is fundraising. Equally important is “Friend Raising”. You can be a big help to Bach Fest by doing a little “Friend Raising” yourself. It’s easy! Just invite your friends to attend one or more Bach Fest events with you. Ask them to join you for a Noon Concert, or any of the free events scheduled at the area wineries. Invite them to the “Courtyard Concert” events at the Episcopal Church Garden. If they are uncertain about Classical Music, invite them to our Saturday Pops Style Concert at Riverwalk where they are certain to hear something familiar. Your guests will have a great time, and will discover what a wide variety of music we present at our Festival each year. Please make it a point to “Friend Raise” for this year’s Bach Fest! You’ll be glad you did! (And so, of course,will we!)
