Missing the annual Bach B minor Mass?

The Bach Choir of Bethlehem

Something was missing last weekend. No, not Mother's Day. No, not glorious blooming dogwood trees. There was no Bach Mass in B minor to hear in Packer Church.

Thanks to friends at WDIY we can gather in time instead of space. The glorious music will once again lift us all!

While it may not be your preferred musical style, it's an incredible masterwork. Here's your chance to give your ears a try.

We are thrilled to share this broadcasting news! We can't sing for you this weekend but click the link and join us - from your home or your car - on Saturday for the Mass in B Minor. Enormous thanks to our media partner, WDIY 88.1 FM for bringing this to all of us!

This is the best virtual piece we’ve seen. Worth a look- and read the article as if they were program notes.

Touchstone Theatre

Touchstone Theatre is keeping the magic of The Young Playwrights Festival alive through quarantine. Share the love, friends!

Get ready for Young Playwrights' Festival Online! We’re counting down until we get to share our finalist plays with you.

In addition to performing our finalist plays, one of the ways we’re honoring our semi-finalist playwrights is by sharing our interpretations of their work - and sharing their scripts for all of you to read! Ensemble Member Emma Ackerman did some drawings of how she imagined “Magical Princess Fairy Adventure,” written by young playwright Olivia Caleca from Farmersville Elementary. Take a look, and read Olivia’s script at bit.ly/YPF_PrincessFairy

Young Playwrights’ Festival Online performs May 9 - streaming access is free, and donations can be made at bit.ly/YPFonline

Join Touchstone as we #StayCreative from home during this pandemic - like Ensemble Member Mary Wright, who's been channeling her creativity into storytime sessions on Facebook Live.

Follow along with her at Mary Wright - Spirited Stories. #covid_19 #stayhome #staysafe #artworks

The Audience Guide cannot wait to hear his words of wisdom in October.

In these days of anxiety, I wanted to find a way to continue to share some of the music that gives me comfort. The first of my #SongsOfComfort: Dvořák – "Going Home”

Stay safe.

Go Phoenix! This is so awesome, Silagh. A perfect fit, dots lovingly connected. Do what you love. Love what you do. Paul Klee said, "A line is a dot that went for a walk." The Lehigh Valley is yours, my friend.
