The First United Methodist Church was ringing with baroque music Wednesday afternoon. The event, Triple Play Baroque, was part of the 39th annual Victoria Bach Festival.

"Each piece was beautifully performed. I enjoyed everything from the first note to the last," said Michael Hummel, one of the founding members of the Victoria Bach Festival board of directors.

The 12 artists ended with a standing ovation from about 275 people after performing BWV 1048.

Terenze Travland, 81, of Bastrop, came to the festival last year with his wife. They liked it then, so they decided to come back to the vibrant festival.

The festival runs through Saturday with performances in the afternoon and evening each day.
