Free Weekend of Bach?

PB.jpg Alright, alright...Minnesota has experienced Philip Brunelle's wizardry for over 45 years, but the man might have outdone himself this time.


Imagine this musical party...

Friday Night:  World-class concert pianist plays Bach's Goldberg Variations

Saturday Night: Chamber music festival featuring Bach's "Hunting" Cantata and songs from the Ana Magdalena Notebook

Sunday Morning: Bach's Cantata 79, Gott, der Herr, ist Sonn' and Schild.

Sunday Afternoon: Critically acclaimed organist plays a concert of festive organ works by Bach.

Best part about all of this...the party starts this weekend and its FREE


Minsoo Sohn (pianist) playing Liszt


Christopher Houlihan (organist) playing Widor


I don't know about you, but I will definitely be going to at least one of these Bach festivities.  The wizard has struck again...
