Bach Walk

Listen up!  Perhaps you’ve never thought of yourself as a bird-watcher, a Nature-lover...let alone a fan of Bach.  But take our advice and join us for the beautiful experience of walking quietly along the T.J. Dolan Trail and discovering beautiful music played throughout the woods.

In 1703, when he was in his mid-teens, Johann Sebastian Bach was already a noted violinist in a small chamber orchestra of a Duke in Saxe-Weimar, Germany.  So, isn’t it fitting that the musicians who will play Bach’s music in the Old Grove this summer are also talented teenagers.  What could be better than to have the young composer represented by these exceptional violinists, violists and cellists from the Stratford Strings Academy.

Stratford Field Naturalists guides will accompany each group of Bach Walkers to point out the flora and fauna along the way.   We recommend good walking shoes and a quiet approach to hear the sounds of the Trail.  Should inclement weather potentially prevent any Sunday walk, please call the Summer Music office (519 271-2101) that morning before 9am for updates.
