Six Ukrainian colleagues who have helped organise our Bach Academies in the Ukraine accepted an invitation from the Neue Bachgesellschaft to attend the Bach Festival in Dresden. The main focus of their visit was on concerts and church services featuring the music of
Johann Sebastian Bach.
However, a visit to Saxony would not be complete without a little sightseeing: our guests also toured several attractions in Dresden and took a trip to Leipzig to visit the Bach Museum and the Mendelssohn House. On the 24th of September the Bach enthusiasts from Donetsk took part in our organisation’s General Assembly in Dresden, where they talked about the cultivation of Bach’s heritage in their country.
Our guests were especially impressed by the high quality of the musical performances and the centuries-old traditions of groups like the Dresdner Kreuzchor (Choir of the Church of the Holy Cross).
We would like to thank all of our members whose donations made it possible for our Ukrainian colleagues to attend the Bach Festival in Dresden!
