Baltimore Bach Marathon General

Johann Sebastian Bach-2

Now in its 46th year, the Bach Marathon has been a tradition in Baltimore since 1976, providing an afternoon and evening of music-making in honor of one of the Western canon's greatest composers. You are invited to come to hear a single performer, a whole hour, or for the entire event! Featuring some of the region's best Baroque interpreters, the marathon represents the flowering of Bach's creative genius, featuring works for organ, harpsichord, voice, and all manner of instruments. Below, you can hear selections from past marathons to experience some of the exciting music presented at this event.
