Our demanding concert schedule is made possible by the significant financial support of private individuals who contribute in large and small, and who share our great passion for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Mitglied werden

In 2006, the J.S. Bach Foundation began performing the entire vocal oeuvre of J.S. Bach, with all concerts held in the picturesque canton of Appenzell. With a cantata concert generally held once a month, it is expected that our cultural endeavour will be concluded in 2027. The concert recordings are released on our streaming platform Bachipedia, as an MP3 download, and on DVD and CD.

In addition to helping us meet our financial requirements, we believe every donation is a confirmation that our musical endeavour occupies an important place in the cultural life of the region – and beyond. Here is how you can support us:
