Northwest BachFest presents 'Postcards from Spokane'



Northwest BachFest prepares to launch an exciting new project on Monday, August 24, 'Postcards from Spokane,' through digital marketing platforms reaching thousands of people in a promotion that will run through September 30. A second launch phase will begin November 9 and run through December, 2020. Goals for the project are to keep Spokane in focus as a desirable cultural destination when regular travel resumes, to further BachFest's position as a presenter of classical music with extremely high-quality performances, and to give viewers short selections of some of the world's most beautiful music being performed in some of Spokane's unforgettable historic venues.

Artistic Director Zuill Bailey proposed doing some musical video vignettes in historic Spokane venues, 'Postcards from Spokane,' to keep BachFest in public focus between its regularly scheduled concert series taking place every three months. Executive Director Gertrude Harvey had selected and reserved five iconic locations for the Postcards, and with the artistry and support of Don Hamilton and Lorna St. John of Hamilton Studio in Spokane and their talented crew, videotaping began the end of August 2019 in the Historic Davenport Hotel's Isabella Room, Hall of Doges, and the Grand Lobby along with the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and Barrister Winery's barrel room. Participating guest musicians in Spokane for the BachFest Summer Classics August 2019 concerts, Kurt Nikkanen, violin, Concertmaster of the New York City Ballet Orchestra, and Dr. Scott Rawls, a noted violist from Greensboro, N.C., joined Artistic Director Zuill Bailey, a world-renowned cellist, to perform Beethoven's String Trio No. 1, Op. 3 in each of the five locations.
