Welcome to Just Bach

Just Bach is a monthly concert series in Madison, WI, celebrating the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Founded to share the immense range of Bach’s vocal and instrumental repertoire with the Madison community at large, Just Bach presents performers who play on period instruments using historically-informed performance practice, bringing the music to life in a manner and style with which Bach was familiar. Vocal music features seasoned professionals who then work with local singers in order to develop a familiarity and love of the repertoire. The audience is invited to sing along during the closing chorales – because group singing is therapeutic!

Just Bach is pleased to be hosted by Luther Memorial Church and to be included on Luther’s free weekly noontime concert series, Music at Midday. After a summer break, Just Bach is planning to return in October, 2022, and continue through April, 2023. Please join us on the third Wednesday of the month:  October 19, November 16, December 14, January 18, February 15, March 15, and April 19.

Concerts will be in-person and recorded but not live-streamed; the recorded concert video will be posted on the Just Bach YouTube channel on the Sunday afternoon following the concert.

Just Bach is committed to presenting concerts in a safe fashion that protects our audience, performers, and the church. We will follow all guidelines set by Luther Memorial Church, Public Health Dane County and Madison, and the Centers for Disease Control. If you feel ill, please do not come to a live concert in the church but watch the concert video online later. For more details, please see our  COVID Policy page.

We are extremely grateful to Pastor Brad Pohlman, music director Andrew Schaeffer, and the congregation of Luther Memorial Church for hosting Music at Midday, and for including Just Bach as a regular part of the series. We invite the Madison community to spend a half-hour with the sublime music of J.S. Bach and hope you will find our performances of Bach’s music to be centering and inspiring.

Just Bach deeply appreciates the support provided by its fiscal sponsor, Bach Around The Clock.

This project is supported by Dane Arts, Luther Memorial Church, and by contributions from attendees and supporters. THANK YOU!
