With the motto “BACH – We Are FAMILY”, the Bach Festival Leipzig 2022 recalls a tradition of the widely branched Bach family of musicians. This meeting took place in the 17. and 18th century once a year at a certain place in Thuringia to play music and celebrate together. Today, the Bach family is a global one. All over the world, people gather in Bach choirs or societies because of their love for Johann Sebastian Bach. Its oldest, the Neue Bachgesellschaft, founded in 1900 in Leipzig, celebrates Bach festivals every year in changing cities. Every five years, the Bach Festival of the New Bach Society coincides with the Bach Festival Leipzig.
