Now in its twelfth season, the Peoria Bach Festival celebrates the music, life, and faith of one of history's greatest composers, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). It has been held annually during the first full week of June since 2003. Organized and hosted by Trinity Lutheran Church, Peoria, Illinois, it is a collaborative effort featuring musicians from all around Central Illinois and the surrounding regions. Not only does it showcase Peoria's own musicians, but it also seeks to encourage and disciple a new generation of musicians while at the same time attracting national and international talent. Trinity's attractive Gothic architecture and reverberant acoustics combined with its historical and religious roots provide a perfect setting for this celebration of Bach's music and faith.

 

Special Guest Artists this year will include conductor/harpsichordist/organist extraordinaire Stephen Alltop from Chicago and his wife, Josefien Stoppelenburg, an internationally acclaimed soprano who specializes in singing Baroque music.
