Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries created music meant to inspire awe. In a harsh and brutal time, the music would provide a calming escape from the day-to-day. In today's noisy, chaotic and stressful world, we need the feeling Baroque music evokes as much as they did then.
Founded 1984 by Professor Donald Oglesby, professor of Choral Studies at the School of Music at the University of Miami. It was the 300th anniversary of the great composer’s birth. Ever since, the society has remained true to its founding purpose, to perform and present the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his Baroque composer colleagues in the highest quality of performance and at the best venues for listening.
MBS holds four to six season performances using local artists, presenting some of the most celebrated performers of western classical music written before 1800, in the world today.
In addition to the Season concerts, MBS has the Tropical Baroque Music Festival. A week long festival of Baroque and seventeenth century music attended year-after-year by music lovers the world over.
We invite you to join us in the company of friends and fellow connoisseurs of the joyous art that enriches the spirit, calms the soul and brings peace to one’s sometimes burdened heart.
