    1 of 2 2 of 2

      The Pacific Baroque Orchestra will give an online performance of J.S. Bach Concertos this Wednesday (January 27).

      "Two of Bach’s most beloved concertos exuberantly celebrate ensemble playing, a joy keenly felt by the musicians of Pacific Baroque Orchestra during this year of isolation," reads the event info. "Each concerto features not a single soloist but rather a trio--flute, violin and harpsichord in Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and two violins accompanied by bass instruments in the Double Violin Concerto. The rest of the ensemble supports the soloists and comments on their playing often in a song-like alternation of catchy tutti refrain and fanciful solo verse."

      Performers will include Alexander Weimann (music director, harpsichord), Chloe Meyers (concertmaster and solo violin 1), Christi Meyers (solo violin 2), Paul Luchkow and Elyssa Lefurgey-Smith (violin), Mieka Michaux (viola), Diederik van Dijk (cello), Natalie Mackie (violone), and Soile Stratkauskas (solo flute).

      The event will be streamed at 7:30 pm Pacific time, and you can find more info here.
