Thuringian Bach Festival

The Thuringian Bach Festival is taking place this year from 22 March to 14 April. Thuringia's biggest classical music festival will again offer a wide range of events, shedding light on the history of Johann Sebastian Bach and his family. Towns and cities in the 'music state' of Thuringia, such as Weimar, Jena, Eisenach and Erfurt, will be hosting concerts, talks and dance performances during the three-week festival.

The Easter break is incorporated into the programme, with church services and interpretations of the St. John and St. Matthew Passions, bringing together culture, music and religion.
