Throughout its history The Washington Bach Consort has made music education programs and audience outreach activities central to its mission. Its Giving Bach to the Community initiatives have offered a range of free or low-cost educational and enrichment activities to residents of the greater Washington DC area. Designed to bring the mastery of Bach’s music as well as the artistry of the Consort to those who, for reasons of cost, location, schedule or lack of familiarity with the music, are unlikely to be regular attendees at any classical music concert, the program includes Bach to School, the Wunderkind Projekt, the Noontime Cantata Series, and Talking Bach. These programs showcase the talents of Consort musicians, guest artists and guest lecturers, and provide thousands of DC area residents with the opportunity to hear, learn, and be inspired by top-notch classical music performances.
