Live Arts Maryland’s Bach+ series, presented in partnership with St. Anne's Episcopal Church, explores the infinite creativity and joy that is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Now in its fifth year, Bach+ offers much more than performances of Bach’s music within a beautiful environment (even though we are privileged to perform in historic St. Anne’s). Bach+ is about communication—exploring the musical dialogue among Bach and those who came before him as well as those who were influenced by his music. Bach+ is also about collaboration—between performer and audience as well as among performers working in variety of genres. Our series takes its inspiration from the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and the latest in Bach research. But Bach+ is not an early music series. While you will find "historically informed performances" (HIP) within each Bach+ season, you'll also experience works that span a number of centuries, including twenty-first century compositions and jazz improvisation.
