From 21 to 30 March 2014 Arnstadt will be devoted to all things Bach. This small town in Thuringia has close links to the composer who worked there as cantor between 1703 and 1707. The festival will be opened by a brass ensemble and closes with a performance by Germany's leading vocal ensemble, Singer Pur.
Thuringia regularly hosts a series of events in honour of Johann Sebastian Bach. And you can also follow the composer's footsteps through Eisenach where he was born and Weimar where he worked.
