- Saturday, January 18, 2014, 7:30 pmBach and BachianasConcert sponsored by Eastern Security Services.
In 1747, Frederick the Great challenged J.S. Bach with a theme that the monarch thought impossible to improvise upon. The astounding result was The Musical Offering. Two centuries later, Heitor Villa-Lobos fused his passion for Bach with his love of native music in his Brazilian "Bach-style" pieces. Members of Symphoria will be joined by a soprano, tenor and bass to perform this outstanding program that also features Bach's Coffee Cantata. Learn more.J.S. Bach Crab Canon
