It is the aim of SCJBF to cultivate knowledge and understanding of Bach's music, as well as to celebrate it. Through festivals, lectures, master classes, recitals and concerts, we offer many opportunities for musical growth to the best of Southern California's young instrumentalists and vocalists.

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Elaine Levy. She was a very active member of our board for many years, and for the last several years held the title of "Regional Advisor." Our condolences to her family and close associates.
