Rostock to Host 2019 Bach Festival

22. March 2017

The 94th Bach Festival of the Neue Bachgesellschaft (NBG) will take place from 10th to 19th May 2019 in Rostock. The Festival will be hosted by the recently founded organisation

Bachverein Rostock, whose aim is to bring together people of all generations who love classical music, in particular the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

The NBG’s Bach Festival has not been held in Rostock since 1995. The 2019 event will be organised in the context of two important celebrations: the 800th birthday of the Hanseatic City of Rostock in 2018 and the 600th birthday of the University of Rostock in 2019.

The Bach Festival programme will include 50 to 60 events held under the theme Counterpoints. Church Music Director Prof. Dr h.c. Markus Johannes Langer, cantor of the St.-Johannis-Kirche (St John’s Church) in Rostock, shall serve as artistic director of the Bach Festival.
