Christa Bach-Marschall Foundation

The benefractress, Christa Bach, is especially interested in advancing young, industrious musicians from Eastern Europe who are financially in need. Therefore, the Christa Bach-Marschall Foundation awards a special price during the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition: a stipend for young musicians to take part in a Masterclass. The decision about the award is made by the jury of the competition.

The Christa Bach-Marschall Foundation also supports participation in the Masterclass of the Competition, which is held in the year before that in which the Bach Competition takes place.
