Bach performance this Sunday!

Sheesh, the primary purpose of this blog is to announce when I've got a performance coming up, and I just let this one sit and wait until I had something to write about it.

6pm, at Christ the King Lutheran Church
Bach Choir, orchestra, and soloists. We'll be singing a Bach cantata, a little Telemann, and a piece by Hiller. Guest conductor Gotthold Schwarz (who speaks virtually no English) has whipped us into pretty good shape. So it should be worth a listen.

The pipe organ at the church was damaged by hurricane Ike, so it won't be in use until next year. The orchestra is playing on period instruments (i.e., the forms the instruments had when Bach was composing), which is both interesting to see and to hear.
