entrance fee

admission free

Johann Sebastian Bach's musical cosmos was not limited to churches and royal houses even during his lifetime - his chamber music and music-making at home played an essential role. Like Bach with his family, numerous Thuringians sing and play in their houses and apartments to this day. And not least because of the little music book for Anna Magdalena Bach, Bach is also known to young musicians. The Bach Weeks are taking this as an opportunity to open the festival with a special event, the Long Night of House Music. For one evening, the Thuringians open their houses and invite to special house concerts, with children and adults, professional musicians and amateurs. Thuringia shows itself as a lively Bachland and gets musically in the mood for the festival.

All Thuringian music lovers are cordially invited to participate as hosts in the Long Night of House Music. Admission to the concerts is free, but seating capacity depends on the size of each apartment.

Bachland Thuringia

Thuringia is formed as a Bach land by the many musicians who make music in regional Bach choirs and orchestras or play at home with their families – both professionals and amateurs. Their concerts are part of the Thuringia Bach Festival and enrich the Festival.

The detailed programme will be released in March 2023. Registration is not required to attend the concerts.


Whether this will be possible and whether large-scale choir rehearsals or open house music in private dwellings will be possible depends on the way that the pandemic evolves. Adequate notice will be provided by the organisers.
