Become a Friend of the Fest

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.
— Plato


The Bach Fest is a cultural treasure, bringing the beauty of music and the beauty of Lake

Chelan together each year for a week of memorable moments of music.

Sponsorships and donations are the way the festival is funded. We thank you for your generous support in

making this festival of live performances possible…. Live music is truly a community effort!

Donations are gratefully accepted….

Cora Hartley Endowment Fund

As part of our growing festival, the Cora Hartley Endowment Fund has been established.  It is appropriate that the Endowment Fund be named in honor of the visionary, energetic and enthusiastic woman who founded this dynamic musical event.  Most festivals, like Bach Fest, are associated with some college, university or other entity that provides ongoing support.  The Lake Chelan Bach Fest has no such affiliation available, so to provide stability from year-to-year, an endowment fund will serve Bach Fest well.  Donations to the Cora Hartley Endowment Fund are fully tax deductible.  The Board has directed that the principal be preserved with the interest available to nurture the continued growth of the festival and each season bring great live performances to our friends in North Central Washington.  Please consider supporting the Lake Chelan Bach Fest through a contribution to the Cora Hartley Endowment Fund.
