AntwerpFrom September 18 to 24, BACH in the CITY is organizing the Bach Festival in Antwerp for the second time. With the timeless music of Johann Sebastian Bach as a starting point, the music festival aims to create connections between old and new music.

For the second time, the Bach Festival will treat music lovers to a selection from the oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), in combination with other disciplines, lectures and a children’s program. The organs in the Sint-Norbertuskerk and the Sint-Carolus Borromeuskerk are once again given an important role. This year they will be played by the Italian Manuel Tomadin and the Frenchman Jean Baptiste Robin. The latter also supervises a master class for students from conservatories in the Netherlands and abroad.

The Bach Festival opens with a festive Bach cantata on Sunday 18 September. The program also consists of concerts with The Antwerp Baroque Orchestra conducted by Emmanuel Van Kerckhoven, a lecture on organ building and an initiation to Baroque dance for children in the Museum Vleeshuis. On Friday there will be BL!NDMAN plays BACH in the St. Carolus Borromeus Church and the closing concert will bring the Luthers Bach Ensemble from Groningen to our city.
