Fundraiser â€“ Albany Consort â€“Â Saturday June 29, 1-6 PM
Not your average
concert, but part jam session, part social event, and a chance to hear
beautiful music in an informal setting and enjoy refreshments provided by local
food vendors including Peetâ€™s Coffee, Trader Joeâ€™s and Country Gourmet.Â
OnÂ Saturday June
29, sixteen members of the Albany Consort, including four
harpsichordists, join together for a marathon Bach fundraiser event, fromÂ 1:00 to 6:00 pm.
The Albany Consort
provides the music, generous local businesses provide the food â€“ and now we
need you to make this a success.Â Come for a short time or as long as you
like, feast your senses, and support Immanuel Lutheranâ€™s concert series.Â
Donations go towards the next seasonâ€™s program, helping to bring more music
into Immanuelâ€™s beautiful space.
You will hear Bachâ€™s
amazing Concerto for Four Harpsichords, his lovely Double Violin Concerto and
four of his Brandenburg Concertos.Â And Telemannâ€™s Triple Violin Concerto,
Haydnâ€™s Cello Concerto and Dittersdorfâ€™s Concerto for Double Bass.Â And
more.Â All expertly played by favorite Bay Area musicians including
Jonathan Salzedo, Marion Rubinstein, Katherine Heater, Maria Brodsky
(harpsichords), David Wilson, Natalie Carducci, Clio Tilton and David Bowes
(violins/violas), Amy Brodo (cello) and Millie Martin (double bass).
Tickets are $25
(general), $15 (church members) â€“ but no one is ever turned away from Immanuel
