About the Ticket Supplier: Carmel Bach Festival
To celebrate the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, his contemporaries and musical heirs.
The Carmel Bach Festival began in 1935 as a three-day festival of concerts at the Sunset School Auditorium and the Carmel Mission Basilica. Dene Denny and Hazel Watrous founded the Festival. Both women were musical producers, owners of the influential Dene-Watrous Gallery and well-known for their efforts in enhancing the cultural life of the Monterey Peninsula.
From the beginning, the founders declared their intention to produce an annual event â€“ a goal that they achieved with the exception of a three-year gap during World War II. The 1930s were not a time when grants and government sponsorship of the arts was commonplace, therefore, Denny and Watrous made up the financial shortfalls of the Festival. In doing so they began a tradition of private financial support that has sustained the Festival to this day and helped it grow.
