Bach Birthday Bash: On-Demand Online

Bach Birthday Bash 2022

with James Kennerley

Our annual Bach Birthday Bash concert is being presented live on the Merrill stage on Tuesday, March 22, 2022. The recording of this concert is being made available for your viewing pleasure between March 26, 2022 and April 25, 2022.

Join James Kennerley, Portland’s Eleventh Municipal Organist, for a performance of music composed by the High Priest of the organ: Johann Sebastian Bach. Born on March 21, 1685, Bach was renowned during his lifetime as a “world-class organist” – more famous for his virtuosic organ playing than for his compositions. Bach’s organ music has captured the minds of performers and audiences for generations ever since. Come to this concert to hear why! Kennerley also plans to play works influenced by Bach. Details to come.
