As the flowers bloom and birds serenade, Bach in Baltimore invites you to delight in the bright and penetrating sound of the stately oboe. The afternoon concert presents Vivaldi’s Concerto for two oboes along with Albinoni’s own Concerto for two oboes. The poignant oboe concertos will pair nicely with Bach’s rich and harmonic Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C major. We conclude our lovely spring concert with Bach’s beloved “Air on the G String,” from Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major. In addition to the powerful fanfare of trumpets, this suite is famous for its slow and stirring movement where the violin plays the melody down an octave and only one string, the G string. The 10th Annual BachFest Fundraiser will follow the concert at Zion Lutheran Church. The evening includes a buffet dinner and an open bar, as well as opportunities to win raffle prizes, and bid on items in our silent auction. All proceeds from the purchase of raffle tickets and auction bids directly support Bach in Baltimore.
