In 2018, Bach Around the Clock was an idea of then-local violin instructor Natalie Burns. Anyone who knows her knows that when she gets an idea, it’s going to be a wild ride, and you don’t want to miss it! Before we knew it, several others dove in head first to see how we could pitch in to make that first-ever Bach Around the Clock event a success here in Bryan/College Station.
This is a free, non-profit event, but like anything, materials cost money and takes time to put together. While attendance and participation in the event is absolutely, completely free for attendees and participants, free-will donations toward offsetting costs of hosting are greatly appreciated. Additional monies raised will go toward our generous facilities host and toward music student scholarships.
Please contact us for how to be a business sponsor for this event.
Thank you to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church for providing us a venue this year.
Thanks to Thorn Music Center for providing instruments for the “instrument petting zoo” and “first notes” workshop in years past.
Since 2022, the Brazos chapter of American Guild of Organists was the celebration of Bach’s 338th birthday host, and they are carrying the weight. It was a natural assumption and fit that this is the same, returning “Bach Around the Clock,” so we went with it.
