Bach Day coming March 16

SoVaNow.com / March 04, 2013
On Saturday, March 16, local music teachers and students will present the third annual “Bach Day” at the Prizery.

Each year students perform music composed by one of the most influential composers, Johann Sebastian Bach; and this year students will also feature another important composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Dr. Tim Duncan will open the program on Saturday morning with a short Biography of Bach and Mozart, followed by performances of vocal, string, and piano students. Toni Howell will present several works with her youth chorus and other vocal ensembles; students of Andrew Liggitt will present works for string ensembles; and piano students of Duncan and Howell will round out the morning with keyboard works.

The morning session at the Prizery has been made possible by a generous grant from Greg Lytz, Vice President of Finance and Administration with the Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation.

The “Bach’s Lunch” session, held at the Parish Hall at Trinity Episcopal Church in South Boston, will include teacher/student performances in a format much like Bach organized in Leipzig at Zimmerman’s Coffee House around 1740. Attendees may bring their own lunch (take-out, etc) and enjoy the music as they eat.

Both sessions are free and open to the public.

The morning session begins at 9 a.m. at the Prizery, and the hour-long lunch session begins at about noon in Trinity Parish Hall on Yancey Street.

Please join us for a delightful day of celebration in honor of the music of Bach and Mozart!
