Making Concert Going an Enlightening Experience

The Bach Sinfonia presents concerts, lectures, and other programs for music lovers and the general public aimed to further a deeper understanding of the variety of styles, composers and masterpieces of the baroque, pre-classical and classical periods. Sinfonia aims to create programs different from the standard classical music concert by providing an educational component within each concert that combines listening entertainment with a learning experience. Each program is crafted to expose, inform, and introduce a broad public to different facets of early music, its practices, history, and sociology.

We present a core series of at least four subscription concerts annually, and additional open performances and educational events for the greater metropolitan Washington, D.C., area. All performances are exclusively on period instruments, performed by highly skilled specialists in the field.

In addition, Sinfonia and director Daniel Abraham frequently undertakes archival research into lesser-known works that are subsequently edited specifically for premiere presentations as part of our concert season. It is this kind of commitment to making every concert an enlightening experience that sets Sinfonia apart.
