2019 Cottages, Gardens, and Cantatas
Cottages, Gardens & Cantatas, the Bach Festival’s home and garden tour returns this spring on Saturday, April 27 from 11am-4pm. MANY volunteers are needed for this one-day event. You may volunteer to help by signing up for one or both shifts and will be assigned to one home for the full time of a single shift.
The criteria for volunteering include: smiling, giving directions and being watchful so that patrons don’t bump into things, trip or pick up home owner belongings. Wear dark pants and a white top. An apron will be provided that will identify you as a Bach volunteer. Wear comfortable shoes in that you will be standing for most of your shift.
The home tour chair will email (or phone) you the week prior to the tour giving you your assignment and sharing background information about the home where you are to work.
SIGN UP FOR ONE OR BOTH SHIFTS. April 27, 2019, 10:45am-1:30 pm or 1:15-4pm. Each shift is 2 ¾ hours. If you sign up by April 15 and wish to tour the other homes, you can purchase a ticket at a 20% discount--$32 instead of $40. All discounted tickets must be purchased by April 23.
It’s a fun event. You get to talk to lots of folks who love being on the tour—making it exceedingly enjoyable for all. In some homes young musicians treat us to great classical music. Do sign up. You can help us make this fundraiser a great success.
