Winter, in its darkest and bleakest moments, represents all that is lost and futile and ephemeral; yet from each end comes every new beginning, such that there is no reason but to embrace whatever comes with love and love alone.

Admission is FREE and no tickets are needed.

Since its founding in 1999 by a group of Columbia University musicians, the Columbia Bach Society has become a major part of musical life at Columbia.  Composed of Columbia University students as well as musicians from the greater New York City community, the Bach Society presents several concerts throughout the year. Founded under the direction of Columbia alumnus Ken-David Masur, the Bach Society has toured Germany, produced and performed numerous operas, given concerts at the 92nd Street Y, the University Club in Manhattan and released its debut album.  The Bach Society is currently directed by Kevin Lee.
