Northwest BachFest Live 2022/23

December 3 - 4, 2022

Northwest BachFest Live continues in December 2022 with two concerts at Barrister Winery, 1213 W. Railroad Avenue in Spokane. 

The Programs – BachFest presents two Grammy-winning musicians, Jason Vieaux, classical guitar, and Zuill Bailey, cello. 

The first program is by guest Jason Vieaux, who Gramophone calls “among the elite of today’s classical guitarists” and described by NPR as “perhaps the most precise and soulful guitarist of his generation.”  The program ranges from Bach to Scarlatti to Morel’s Danza Brasilera  to two pieces composed by or for Vieaux.

Northwest BachFest Artistic Director Zuill Bailey joins Vieaux for the second event with a delightful program including Bach, Ellington, Grattali, Falla and more.
