Buxtehude Back to Bach!
Please help us make our 2017 Spring Concert "Buxtehude Back to Bach" a reality! On May 19, 2017, 7 pm, we will celebrate the legacy of the prolific composer Dieterich Buxtehude (1637-1707) who was born this May 380 years ago! Buxtehude was a remarkable influence in the young Johann Sebastian Bach. Like Bach, Buxtehude was an accomplished organist, and his music is the most elaborate and virtuosic of the period. In this concert, the choirs of St. Mary’s Church, accompanied by an experienced period orchestra, will join to present two of Buxtehude’s best known works: his cantata “Alles was ihr tut” and his “Magnificat” for choir and orchestra. Additionally, renowned organist Dongho Lee will perform Buxtehude’s organ works, showcasing the beautiful St. Mary’s organ. The concert will be free and open to all.
