Mark your calendars: BACH MARATHON is March 21
We are thrilled to invite you to our very special event, a BACH MARATHON on Saturday, March 21, the 330th birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach! As lovers of this wonderful music, you are invited to participate.
The MARATHON will begin at 1:00 pm and conclude at 9:00 pm, and take place in the Christ the King Lutheran Church nave and parish hall. Live performances of 30-45 minutes will take place throughout the day and evening. Vocal and instrumental music is welcome, and our splendid organs, piano, and harpsichord are here to be employed.
The BACH MARATHON is a free and festive event open to all. There will be no entry charge, but we will collect money for the Houston Food Bank as a free will offering. They will receive 100% of the collection. Participating artists will receive no payment, but the knowledge that their talents are going to feed those who struggle to put food on the table.
Anyone who wishes to participate should contact Bach Society Houston Director Rick Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you’ll join us for this beautiful musical event!

Bach Society Welcomes Rick Erickson, New Director
Welcome to Bach Society Houston! I am honored to be the new Director, following in the path of my outstanding predecessors in celebrating the amazing music of JS Bach! I have been so fortunate to have spent such a large portion of my life with Bach, and I look forward now to the exciting challenges and opportunities ahead here in Houston. Please take a moment to introduce yourself during this season – I look forward to meeting and talking with you!
The coming season promises to be a rich one indeed, complete with cantatas, St. Matthew Passion, chamber and organ music, lectures, a bit of Purcell and more! Please join us in the acoustical and visual beauty of Christ the King Lutheran Church as we sing and play the great music of Johann Sebastian. Thank you for your support of Bach Society Houston. Together, we will continue to build on the great tradition we have been given.
