SOLD OUT – Music at the Library: Bachanalia

February 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join The Bach Society of Charleston as they celebrate Bach. This evening of music and romance begins with a concert of Baroque chamber music for harpsichord, violin, and voice followed by a talk offering glimpses into the personal life of Bach. Our speaker is Pulitzer Prize-finalist, scholar Christoph Wolff, author of the New York Times best-selling biography, Johann Sebastian Bach: The Learned Musician. The program concludes with a book signing and reception featuring European wines, cheeses, and confections. Delightful in itself, this event is an amuse bouche for the Bach Society’s upcoming spring festival of Baroque music, March 8-10.

The Bach Society of Charleston is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to presenting Baroque music on Baroque instruments in an American Baroque city.

Tickets are strictly available through the Bach Society of Charleston and are $25 for adults and $10 for students. To purchase tickets, click here.

Pulitzer-prize finalist author and Harvard University Professor, Christoph Wolff will offer a lecture on the private life of Bach as chronicled in his New York Times best-selling biography, Johann Sebastian Bach: The Learned Musician. His talk will be preceded by Baroque chamber music, featuring London Royal College of Music graduate and international guest soloist, Margaret Kelly Cook; Murray Somerville, founding conductor of the Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra, on harpsichord, and Allison Willet, founding member of the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, on Baroque violin.
