The Bach Festival Society of Winter Park

The Bach Festival Society was founded in 1935 at Rollins College to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach’s birth by presenting the composer’s orchestral and choral music to the public for its “enlightenment, education, pleasure, and enjoyment.” The Society decided early on to operate in partnership with Rollins College while still maintaining its status as a fully independent non-profit organization.

Today, the Society maintains an all-volunteer choir of over 180 singers from throughout Central Florida and a professional orchestra of nearly 50 members. We present nearly 30 ticketed performances, dozens of in-school educational programs, a high school choral festival, and several community concerts; we produce recordings, run two community choirs (a youth choir and the Young at Heart Chorale), and form high-level artistic partnerships reaching approximately 50,000 people annually.

The Bach Festival Society is the third-oldest continuously operating Bach Festival in the United States and Central Florida’s longest-running performing arts organization. We maintain a strong partnership with Rollins College and provide high-quality performance and learning opportunities to students, faculty, and staff.
