The Hudson Valley BachFest is an annual multi-weekend marathon of four concerts celebrating the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.
This year, the festival takes place in two Hudson Valley locations: Dutchess and Ulster counties.
THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL IS DEDICATED TO VIOLINIST EMILY FAXON, WHO PASSED AWAY IN JANUARY. EMILY WAS CO-FOUNDER OF BACHFEST AND HVSM, AND HER PASSING IS A TREMENDOUS LOSS TO THE HUDSON VALLEY MUSICAL COMMUNITY.
