Northwest Bach Festival

When: Feb. 25-March 9 2014

After a full week and a half of events, the Northwest Bach Festival continues through Sunday. Celebrating a composer who died more than 250 years ago may seem unimportant, but after experiencing the music live it all becomes clear why. There’s plenty of Bach left to hear, with artistic director Zuill Bailey performing solo cello works Friday and Saturday. Pianist Lara Downes plays a mix of Bach to Brubeck Saturday at Barrister Winery. The Sunday performance concludes with a brand-new Bailey and Downes collaboration CD Release Party at the Luna Garden Room. Most of these events include opportunities to drink wine and/or champagne.
