From Mozart to Marsalis, Robert and Clara Schumann to Roberta Flack, Piazzolla, Florence Price and Poulenc to Paul McCartney. Centuries after his death, Bach’s music and singular musical intellect continues to inspire and excite musicians across genres and forms.
Join Andrew Bukenya and a hand-picked vocal ensemble in a short, intimate and joyous acapella program of vocal music inspired by the Baroque master. This vocal celebration spans Bach motets and Renaissance polyphony through to sounds inspired by Ward Swingle, spirituals, soul and beyond.
As the indomitable Nina Simone said: “[Bach’s notes] always add up to climaxes, like ocean waves getting bigger and bigger.”
Bach in Colour is a joy-filled concert that will transport and uplift.
