During his life time, the musical world of Johann Sebastian Bach was not just confined to churches and princely houses – his musicmaking at home played an important part. As Bach did with his family, so numerous Thuringians today still sing and play in their houses and flats. And it is not just the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach which has significance for this younger generation of musicians. For the Thuringia Bach Festival this is a good reason to open the Festival with a particular event, the long night of house music. For one evening Thuringians will open their houses and invite people to house concerts, with children and adults, professional musicians and amateurs. Thuringia shows itself as the lively native country of the Bach family and joins in musically with the spirit of the Festival.
Thuringian families are most welcome to get involved as hosts for the long night of house music. Entrance to concerts is free, seating capacity is limited depending on the size of the house.
Additional information and registration as a host: phone +49 (0) 361 . 21 69 86 08 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The detailed programme will be released in March 2020.
Registration is not required to attend the concerts.
