Bach Week Ansbach

Every two years concert halls and churches fill up in Ansbach and festive glamour falls onto the margravial city for ten days. The most important musical event in Ansbach, which can already look back at an almost 70-year long tradition, is dedicated to the most protruding composer of musical history: Johann Sebastian Bach. Works from his feather, compositions of contemporaries and also from other epochs can be heard during the Bach Week in the baroque halls of the city, in the impressive large stateroom of the residence, in the orangery and in the large churches St. Gumbertus and St. John.
