There's music in the air along the Gulf Coast every summer during the Victoria Bach Festival, a radiant jewel among the nation's cultural attractions.

The week-long Festival offers a diverse repertoire of orchestral music, choral works and chamber concets by baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary composers. The works of J.S. Bach are in the spotlight, of course, but the festival also presents important works by other major composers, and features performances by nationally acclaimed artists.

Educational programming and free public concerts, held outdoors or in intimate settings around the city, complement evening programs throughout Festival week.

Hailed by National Public Radio as "a Texas treasure," and "the best kept little secret in Texas," the Festival has been featured on broadcasts of NPR's Performance Today.
