Each year the Music Teacher’s Association of California (MTAC) celebrates the music of Johann Sebastian Bach with a competition in which students perform an original work by memory. Established in 1961 by Madame Alice Ehlers of theUniversity of Southern California, the Southern California Junior Bach Festival was founded to stimulate interest in and appreciation for the music of J. S. Bach. Through workshops and seminars by well-known Bach scholars and the annual presentation of students in the Southern California Junior Bach Festival, the organization maintains high performance standards and interpretation of J.S. Bach's music.
