Just Bach announces the launch of its 3rd concert season!
We are thrilled to share the timeless beauty of Bach with music lovers in Madison and beyond, for another year.
Our host venue, Luther Memorial Church, has resumed their weekly ‘Music at Midday’ concert series. https://www.luthermem.org/music-at-midday/
As part of this series, Just Bach concerts will take place at 12 Noon on the 3rd Wednesday of each month:
Sep 16, Oct 21, Nov 18, Dec 16, Jan 20, Feb 17, Mar 17, Apr 21, May 19.
It is still too risky to have an in-person audience, so Music at Midday concerts will be posted on the Luther Memorial website. In addition, Just Bach concerts will be posted on the Just Bach website, the Just Bach facebook page, and the Just Bach YouTube Channel. The concert footage will be online for at least a week. Viewing the concerts is free, but we ask those who are able, to help us pay our musicians with tax-deductible donation. https://www.paypal.com/donate/?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=7A4R7CA8VDRMG&source=url
This Wednesday’s concert program opens with three movements from the Solo Partita in D Minor, BWV 1004, performed by violinist Kangwon Kim. Organist Mark Brampton Smith continues, with the Pastorale in F, BWV 590, a work with four contrasting movements. Just Bach Co-Founder and Violist Marika Fischer Hoyt leads the final chorale, from Cantata 99, Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan (What God does, is well done). We encourage viewers to sing along by following the chorale sheet music, which will display on the screen, as Mark accompanies on the organ. Cantata 99 is a timely choice; it was composed for the 15th Sunday after Trinity, which is next Sunday, September 20.
We need this soul-centering music now more than ever; we invite the music community to join us this Wednesday, for a wonderful program of J.S. Bach.
September 16 Program:
• Partita in D Minor for solo violin, BWV 1004: Allemanda, Sarabanda, and Giga
• Pastorale in F, BWV 590
• Chorale: Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan (What God does, is well done)
Kangwon Kim, violin
