The Ernst Bacon Society was founded in January, 1996 to promote awareness and appreciation of the music and other works of Ernst Bacon. To that end, we arranged a highly successful series of concerts for the centennial year and are looking forward to many more. The Society feels strongly that a closer inspection will reveal a truly remarkable contribution to American music and that the world will be richer for hearing and knowing it.


"You are like the clear dawn wind in the midst of the foul smogs of contemporary cultural decay." -- Ansel Adams
