The Bach Virtuosi Festival is presented by Aeolian Chamber Players, Inc., a non-profit corporation. The mission of Aeolian Chamber Players is to advance the knowledge of music by presenting and supporting public performances of music and other programs, by commissioning new musical works, and by assisting talented students in their musical studies and early careers.
For many years, the corporation sponsored music performances and other musical endeavors by the Aeolian Chamber Players, a chamber music group performing throughout the United States and Europe, including residencies at various colleges and at the Bowdoin International Music Festival. It made significant grants for the performances of the Portland Bach Festival in June 2016 and 2017. The musicians who performed there are now the nucleus of the Bach Virtuosi Festival to be held in June 2018.
