All Bach on the Flentrop Organ

Our next concert was to feature Seattle Baroque Music Director Alex Weimann playing an All Bach performance on the Flentrop Organ at St Mark’s Cathedral in partnership with the Cathedral’s All Bach series. However, due to current travel restrictions, this performance has been postponed one year to Friday, May 14, 2021. Mark your calendars, and if you have bought tickets to this concert, they will be honored next year.

Alexander Weimann, Music Director of the Seattle Baroque Orchestra, is also a renowned organist. Weimann will select from the great canon of Bach’s famous works and will also play improvisations in the style of the master.

Presented in collaboration with Early Music Seattle and the Seattle Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
