Led by Kenneth McGrath, the Community School’s Intermediate Percussion Ensemble and Chamber Percussion Ensemble perform an evening of chamber music.
This season, this elite conductorless chamber orchestra comprised of talented young musicians brings to life Mahler’s stunning arrangement of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden Quartet and Lyric for Strings by George Walker, the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. This performance will be livestreamed.
Join the Community School’s Suzuki violin and cello students, who will perform a festive program of holiday favorites and other selections.
“To Be Bach or Not to Be Bach” is a program of three works for violin and harpsichord that have been attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach. Their BWV catalog numbers suggest that they are original compositions by the famed composer —but are they? Performed on period instruments, this program paints a picture of the musical world in which Bach lived.
BACH Suite for Violin and Harpsichord in A Major, BWV 1025
BACH Sonata for Violin and Continuo in C Minor, BWV 1024
BACH Sonata for Violin and Obbligato Harpsichord in E Major, BWV 1016
III. Adagio ma non tanto
