Join Our Team

The Carmel Bach Festival (CBF) began in 1935 as a four-day series of concerts at the Sunset School Auditorium and the Carmel Mission Basilica. In its 87th season, the festival has grown into a two-week celebration of nearly sixty concerts, recitals, master classes, lectures, and open rehearsals in July. The festival’s mission is to celebrate the works, inspiration, and ongoing influence of Johann Sebastian Bach worldwide by immersing audiences in a festival experience integrating music, education, and ideas.
