Purpose and mission
The operative activities were transferred from the J.S. Bach Foundation to its subsidiary to enable the Foundation to focus on fulfilling the objective set out in its statutes: to finance the performance of the entire vocal oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach.
In January 2016, the J.S. Bach Foundation commenced a fundamental restructuring of its organisation in order to enhance management efficiency and meet the operative demands of its concert and publishing activities, which have grown continually since 2006. Key steps in the reorganisation were realised in the first quarter of 2017: the operative activities of the Foundation were transferred from the J.S. Bach Foundation to its subsidiary (“Vertriebs AG der J. S. Bach-Stiftung”) to enable the Foundation to focus on financing the performance of the entire vocal oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach, in accordance with its statutory aims. At the end of March 2017, the subsidiary was renamed J.S Bach St. Gallen AG.
Since then, the J.S. Bach St. Gallen AG has operated under the mandate of the J.S. Bach Foundation and is responsible for the operative implementation of the Foundation’s artistic goals.
The J.S. Bach St. Gallen AG exclusively pursues not-for-profit activities.
The J.S. Bach St. Gallen AG is a non-commercial entity that exclusively pursues not-for-profit activities.
