carmel Bach Festival 76th Season season sponsor official airline media sponsor July 13â€“27, 2013 with pre-fest activities July 6-12 paul goodwin Artistic Director and Principal Conductor bachfestival.org 831.624.1521 I look forward to welcoming you to our 2013 Festival, The French Connection. Our 76th annual Summer Festival includes concerts at venues throughout Carmel, Monterey and Pebble Beach. We open on Saturday with Fauré's exquisite Requiem at the Sunset Theater in Carmel and follow it with Bach's Christmas Oratorio in its entirety on Sunday, bringing it back as a mainstay of our Bach repertoire in an interpretation both light and lively. Monday is the string concerto evening with our leader Peter Hanson. On Tuesday, David Gordon, in his 25th Anniversary year, and I present a program of familiar and also unusual french music through the centuries. You will be happy to hear that we are returning to the Carmel Mission Basilica on Wednesday evening with a choral celebration. We then “cross over” to jazz and Bach on Thursday night and our final concert balances colorful French baroque music with the extraordinary Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique played in period style. There is such variety this season that you should not miss these festival weeks in the incomparable beauty of Carmel-by-the-Sea. I hope to see you in July!

(as of March 1, 2013) CARMEL BACH FESTIVAL :: 2013 :: www.bachfestival.org 15 The unique community of Carmel-by-the-Sea is like a diamond—multifaceted and rare. Lying on a gently rising slope above a magnificent white beach, the village is carefully tucked away creating the perfect getaway escape. Set in the heart of the magnificent Central California coastline, a visit to the Carmel Bach Festival is an experience of beauty in many forms—stunning natural landscapes, historic architecture, breathtaking ocean views, and of course, glorious music-making. Enjoy five-star lodging, award-winning restaurants, champion golf courses, spas, wine tasting, nature hikes, art galleries, and shopping—plus the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. World-class music tops off this feast for the senses and the spirit! Walking through the small business district, quaint boutiques and galleries prevail. The charm of Carmel also lies in its small scale. The whole downtown is made up of a few short blocks. The architecture of the low, one and two story buildings, remind the visitor of trips to Italy and Spain or the Cotswolds in the south of England. Little hidden courtyards invite one to explore, with many of them leading to unexpected miniature gardens tucked away among the shops. Planters and window boxes abound with color almost all year round. The flora for the gardens of this area has been imported from all over the world. Yet the tall native Monterey Pine trees provide a protective canopy throughout. Just steps away from Carmel one can enjoy wine tasting in Carmel Valley, gorgeous views and beaches in Big Sur, or a visit to the John Steinbeck Center in sunny Salinas.
