A Virtual Chamber Music Festival

A Warm Virtual Greeting!

We're heartbroken we won't be able to perform for you in person this summer. But never fear! We are channeling the Inextinguishable Flame of BDDS to bring you a fabulous virtual festival entitled Bach's Lunch.

From Sunday, June 7, through Sunday, June 28, we will send three short virtual BDDS concerts every week––Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday––together with brief interviews with some of your favorite BDDS artists!
On Sunday, June 7th, we kick off Bach's Lunch at noon by sending you our BDDS e-newsletter, containing a short interview with Stephanie and Jeffrey, and a brief concert featuring the dynamic duo, and a taste of what's to come. Please share it widely with friends and family!

After that, each concert will feature one of our outstanding artists playing a solo work by Johann Sebastian Bach recorded in their home. Each artist will sit for a short interview by Stephanie and Jeffrey, and we'll include a link to the artist's selection of one of our archived YouTube performances. Featured artists will include Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio, Jean-Michel Fonteneau, Alan Kay, Adrian Morejon, Beth Rapier, Anthony Ross, Axel Strauss, and Carmit Zori. Never in the history of the world has a finer cast been assembled!

We'd love to hear what you think, and even more than that, we'd love to hear what questions you might have for these artists! Get your questions to Samantha by clicking here and we'll slip them into our interviews if we can.

On Sunday, June 28, we have a grand finale planned––and it is very grand indeed, so stay tuned!
You Have Our Undying Gratitude!

So many of you have shown concern and support for us at this time. We're profoundly grateful and can't wait to be together with you in person when it's time.
