Have you ever wondered what it’s like to actually play a baroque period instrument from Bach’s time? Here’s your chance!
These instruments will be available for instrumentalists to try:
- A magnificent tracker organ
- A gorgeous harpsichord made by Kevin Fryer
- Fine baroque style violins, violas, and cellos
- A small, rare five-stringed baroque cello *
Period instrument specialists—including a musician from PBO—will be on hand to demonstrate instruments, answer questions, and to offer guidance.
*Thanks are due to Ifshin Violins for generously loaning baroque stringed instruments to the Junior Bach Festival for this event.
