What is BachReach?

BachReach is Bach Aria Soloists’ uniquely interactive, dynamic educational outreach for schools and members of the community. Our program places the world-class musicians of BAS in urban, and suburban schools and community venues introducing Bach, Baroque and contemporary music in a fun, exciting, highly informative presentation tailored to the student/teacher audience, FREE to the schools, thanks to our generous underwriters.


Each BachReach is utterly original, incorporating unique themes that provide meaningful context to music that the audience has never before experienced. BAS invites our excellent arts partners to the schools in order to demonstrate the multi-genre, imaginative programming that BAS presents to inspire youths and interact, inviting them to dance, act, clap, ask questions, see and hear masterpieces brought to new, exciting life.

Artistic Director-Violinist Elizabeth Suh Lane has been in demand as an orchestral and chamber music clinician for the top orchestra programs in the city for nearly two decades. As an integral part of BachReach, her clinics are also provided FREE to schools!

BachReach will serve well over 2,200 students in 2017-2018 with 13 BachReach educational events throughout the metropolitan area, and expanding to Springfield, MO, partnering with three public schools.
