Annual Whittier College Bach Festival


Whittier Back FestialThe Department of Music at Whittier College hosts its annual Bach Festival to support its educational mission and to enhance the musical experiences of our students and the Southern California community.

Each spring, we bring a special emphasis to our Bach Festival. Past foci have included women who affected Bach’s musical compositions and the influence of his music in Latin America. This year, we will focus on Bach's Instrumental Music.
