The J.S. Bach Foundation concerts take place in the Evangelische Kirche in Trogen, Switzerland. You can reach the church by car or public transport (Map).
After the workshop, a snack is served at the Restaurant Krone across the road from the church.
The Evangelische Kirche in Trogen…
- …is a historical building of national significance under the protection of the Swiss federal government and the canton Appenzell-Auserrhoden
- …was commissioned in 1777 by bridge-builder Hans Ulrich Grubenmann after an earthquake had severely damaged the earlier gothic-style church.
- …underwent a total renovation in 1989/1990
- …has a beautiful Italianate exterior that complements the visual statement of the Landgemeindeplatz, the canton of Appenzell-Ausserrhoden's county seat. The piazza is in many ways an architectural witness to an early wave of globalism: urbane and well-travelled merchants built palatial buildings, lending the square an air of grandeur.
