1685 Society


The 1685 Society is a group of supporters who have expressed their commitment to the Washington Bach Consort by naming the Consort as a beneficiary of their will or other planned gift. The 1685 Society is a way to recognize this ultimate contribution to the Washington Bach Consort’s future.

We thank our 1685 Society members for their dedication and foresight in preserving the artistic and educational goals of the Consort that will allow future generations to experience the music of J.S. Bach here in our nation’s capital.
