Victoria Bach Festival

Victoria, TX 77903



To educate and inspire musicians and audiences of all ages and backgrounds through high-quality and diverse orchestral, choral, and chamber music performances.


The Victoria Bach Festival was founded in 1976 under the direction of Dr. David Urness, a faculty member at the University of Houston-Victoria. The Victoria Bach Festival Association continues to benefit from partnerships with UHV and many community organizations and businesses.

Today's expanded festival is shaped by a Creative Team that includes Grammy-nominated Artistic Director Craig Hella Johnson, who has led VBF since 1992, Chamber Music Director Michelle Schumann, and New Young Artist Coordinator Faith DeBow. Their collective expertise in chamber music, music education, and choral and orchestral performance shapes the Festival's engaging musical experiences.
