About Washington Bach Consort
1310 G Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005, US
The Washington Bach Consort employs a professional chorus and orchestra noted for its historically-informed performances of 18th-century music on period instruments. As one of the DC area’s most critically acclaimed and nationally recognized performing arts organizations, the Consort has made regular appearances with organizations such as the Washington Performing Arts Society, the National Symphony Orchestra and the Cathedral Choral Society. From its inception, the Consort has made music education and community outreach a priority as a conduit to achieve its mission to present accessible world-class art and promote current and future appreciation of J.S. Bach in our community. The wide range of initiatives the Consort presents to the community brings the arts to students who, for cost, location, schedule, or lack of knowledge with the music, would not regularly attend a classical music performance.
Dana Marsh was named Artistic Director in August 2018. Founded in 1977 by the late Dr. J. Reilly Lewis, the Washington Bach Consort is committed to the study and performance of the complete vocal and instrumental works of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries. The mission of the Washington Bach Consort is to
1) Perform to the highest artistic standards the music of J.S. Bach and his Baroque contemporaries,
2) Expand its audience through concerts, collaborations with other performing ensembles, media appearances, marketable recordings and tours, and
3) Promote current and future appreciation of J.S. Bach in our community through compelling music education programs presented by members of the Consort.
