 The Festival of Bach has been made possible through the generosity of the Fine Foundation, an anonymous donor, and individual donors. The members of the Pittsburgh Music Alliance would also like to thank the Allegheny Regional Asset District and Heinz Endowments for their sustaining support of PMA over the last three years. This commitment has made it possible for us to collaborate on many things, and has supported our work throughout the planning phases for the Festival Bach. We thank Calvary Episcopal Church and all their staff, for their help and hospitality, and our media sponsor WQED-FM for helping to spread the word about great music in Pittsburgh.

Above all, we want to thank the many talented musicians who are performing in the Festival of Bach and the wonderful audiences who support great music performance in Pittsburgh.
