A Variety of Bach Fest Performances are Still Ahead

by Loni Rahm

If you are a “glass half empty” kind of person, I’m sad to announce you’ve already missed over half of the Annual Lake Chelan Bach Fest. But if you are a “glass half full” kind of person – there’s plenty more to enjoy! And as luck would have it, your glass can get completely filled with an award-winning local wine during the Music on the Vine series of performances at Hard Row to Hoe (tonight) and Rio Vista at the River (tomorrow).

 

The 10-day Bach Fest winds up with a free concert on Saturday at the Pavilion at Riverwalk Park. The schedule of remaining events is listed below:

  • WEDNESDAY, JULY 11 AT 7:30 PM

MUSIC ON THE VINE: HARD ROW TO HOE WINERY

Hard Row to Hoe invites you to experience the Bach Festival String Quartet for a night of classical music outside in a natural amphitheater. This is always a beautiful summer evening and there is something about listening to music outside that makes it especially beautiful. Don’t miss this wonderful event! Please bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit on. Picnicking welcome! Free, but donations to the Lake Chelan Bach Festival are encouraged.
