Guest pianist Barbara McKenzie will launch WHQR's new Bach's Lunch series on Friday, March 31st. Whether you're a long time, sophisticated listener or someone looking for a rejuvenating lunch break, you'll enjoy gathering in the WHQR Gallery from Noon-1 to hear Barbara bring the joy and wonder of Bach's keyboard music to life. She'll expose the melodies and mysteries of Bach's G minor English Suite, a series of dances and jigs and share some interesting factoids about the Baroque master. Bring your lunch-we'll have cake and refreshments. The music will begin at 12:15pm.
J.S. Bach's birthday was March 31st, 1685...332 years ago. We might forego the candles for this one.
Barbara McKenzie makes her home in Wilmington, and is the co-founder and artistic director of Chamber Music Wilmington, now in it's 22nd season. She serves as CMW's Artist in Residence and continues an active performance career both nationally and internationally. Her most recent performances have been at New York's Merkin Hall where she joined the Philharmonic Chamber Ensemble in an all contemporary French music program. She loves to share her enthusiasm for classical music. So bring your lunch and learn what makes it great!
