Caleb Young, Conductor

Rescheduled from May, 2017, and relocated to the elegant climate-controlled indoor venue at Joseph Decuis Farm, Bach in the Barn is designed to be an intimate listening experience in a picturesque country setting. Audiences will be seated at beautifully appointed tables set to candlelight, with wine and desserts included in the ticket price.

Each of three evenings features a different program of gorgeous music by J. S. Bach and his contemporaries, performed by members of the Philharmonic as soloists. Choose the date that’s best for you, or experience all three and save nearly 30%.

Joseph Decuis Farm is located at 6755 East 900 South, Columbia City, approximately 5 miles west of I-69 via West Jefferson Blvd. and Liberty Mills Road.
