Anticipate a relaxed and beautiful evening under the spreading oak of Ebenezer’s courtyard while you enjoy craft beers, specialty food and all things Bach. Guests will be encouraged to linger and mingle – coming and going throughout the performance while enjoying…
Pianist, harpsichordist, and organist Matthew C. Ganong will present both the Musical Offering and the Art of Fugue by Bach. Join us in the beautiful Ebenezer sanctuary as Matthew and friends present a collection of canons, fugues, and a trio sonata, all based on a single theme given to Bach by Frederick the Great during the composer's visit to the king's court in 1747. Bach’s other work, The Art of Fugue, will feature Mr. Ganong solo at the keyboard as we savor an evening of two of J.S. Bach's greatest polyphonic masterpieces, composed during the last decade of the composer's life.
