Historic Churches Tour

The Historic Churches Tour took place in centuries-old rural churches, celebrating these treasured historic buildings and their communities through live performance, photography, and recording. In May 2021, as part of Bach Roads of Montana, Carrie Krause played selections from the Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin in eight churches within arm’s reach of Gallatin County, celebrating not only Bach’s music but also Montana’s history. These distinctive churches have been restored and cared for, and each provided different acoustical spaces for Carrie to explore and express Bach’s music. Local hosts generously shared their church’s and community’s history.
