A birthday celebration

The first International Bach Festival, initiated by the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra, will take place between March 17 and 21 in several venues of the holy city.

“To the best of my knowledge, this is the only Bach festival that takes place on the date that Bach was born, March 21,” says Sara Piro, manager of the orchestra.

“Lectures about Bach’s music presented by the orchestra’s artistic director David Shemer triggered the idea for the festival.”
