BachFest presents two Grammy-winning musicians, Jason Vieaux, guitar, and Zuill Bailey, cello.  The first program is by guest Jason Vieaux, who Grammophone calls “among the elite of today’s classical guitarists” and described by NPR as “perhaps the most precise and soulful guitarist of his generation” in a program ranging from Bach to Scarlatti to Morel’s Danza Brasilera  to two pieces composed by or for Vieaux.

Northwest BachFest Artistic Director Zuill Bailey joins Vieaux for the second event with a delightful program including Bach, Ellington, Grattali, Falla and more.
