The 3MBS Bach Marathon brings Australia's finest classical musicians together to present an all-day experience celebrating the works of the Bach family.

Across six concerts in a single day, the Bach Marathon program presents a selection of J S Bach's incredible output of masterworks, a cross-section of works by his sons including the first performance in 240 years of the C P E Bach St Matthew Passion (1777), and arrangements by other prominent composers who drew on Bach's works for inspiration.

Join the Melbourne classical music community, and our most loved chamber and vocal musicians, for this unique event in appreciation of one of history's greatest musical families.
