Announcing the Passing of Steve Friedlander

Dear Carmel Bach Festival patrons and friends,

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and longtime executive director, Stephen Friedlander.

Steve passed away peacefully last Friday, surrounded by his son, daughter, and sister.

All of us at the Carmel Bach Festival are processing this news and are keenly feeling his loss. We dearly loved Steve. We will miss his wit, his sense of humor, and his devotion to our Festival.

We will continue to relay more news as it becomes available, including plans for a memorial or service. Notes and cards for Steve’s family may be dropped off at the Carmel Bach Festival office or sent to:

Steve Friedlander c/o:
