Bach Week Festival's music director, Richard Webster, will run the 2019 Chicago Marathon on Sunday October 13 to benefit the 2020 festival. Please support Richard's run! He has run previous marathons as J.S. Bach, Paul Revere, Abraham Lincoln, Robin, the Easter Bunny, Robin Hood, Prince William, a "Cash Cow", Olaf from "Frozen" and a bumble bee.

Join us at 5:30pm that evening for our annual benefit, "BACHanalia" in the lobby of Nichols Concert Hall (1490 Chicago Avenue, Evanston). Enjoy an evening of spectacular music performed by Chicago Harp Quartet's CHQ.2 and enjoy wine paired in perfect harmony with the music. The wine tasting (complemented by a selection of hearty hors d’oeuvres) will be led by VIN CHICAGO's Mike Baker, an Advanced Sommelier in the Court of Master Sommeliers!
