Founded in 1972 as a chapter of the Neue Bachgesellschaft, the American Bach Society supports the study, performance, and appreciation of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach in the United States and Canada.
Information on membership is available here, along with a short history of the Society and information on its administration.
On this site you can also find links to other Bach organizations and to Bach festivals, as well as a small selection of interesting Bach illustrations.
We have dedicated a special page on this website in honor of William H. Scheide's 100th birthday. After a brief note by Christoph Wolff, the page lists all of his publications, and all his Bach holdings at Princeton University's Scheide Library.
