Bach wrote some of the most sublime music, but that doesn't mean you should only observe it from a distance, on a pedestal. Here are some opportunities for self reflection and personal connection through the music of our favorite composer and those he inspired.

Musical Sanctuary

Thursdays 11.00am-1.00pm

Find solace through music. Once a week, a single musician will be in the sanctuary playing solo works by Bach and other composers. You are invited to drop by, listen and reflect for as long as you like. By creating regular and accessible opportunities to experience live musicianship, we aim to join in efforts to support the wellbeing of adults in our community, especially those adults who need the respite, the feeling of connection, or who are otherwise unlikely to be able to access the benefits of live music.

Sign up for our weekly e-newsletter to learn which weeks you can find a musician in the sanctuary.

Musical Conversations

As the pandemic surges yet again, we are bringing back this initiative we started in the Spring of 2020 as a way to nurture human connection through music even when we can't be together in the same room. Sit down with one of our musicians on Zoom for a short (about 30 minutes) intimate, informal conversation. They'll bring their instrument and play some music that is meaningful to them. Together you'll discuss whatever it brings up for you.

A Musical Conversation can be a great gift for yourself, a loved one, or a small group of family and friends. Our musicians have also found these interactions to be powerful and poignant.

To learn more or schedule a conversation, please email our Engagement Manager, Megan Bisceglia.
