On November 13th, 2015 at 5:30 PM, Ebenezer Lutheran Church, Patrons and Friends of the Arts at Ebenezer will present a free concert in the beautiful Ebenezer sanctuary of two of Bach's masterpieces, 'Goldberg Variations' and 'The Art of Fugue'. These will be performed solo at the piano by Matthew C. Ganong, and were composed during the last decade of the composer's life, representing the full fruition of his creative powers. Along with the music, there will be River Rat craft beers/soda and food from the Wurst Wagen for sale around the spreading oak in the church courtyard making it a real celebration! During the many intermissions people will be able to come and go from the sanctuary as they wish, to hear music or relax outside and enjoy some German-style fare. This event affords the unique opportunity to enjoy these masterworks of the Baroque era in a mellow and beautiful setting, under the historic oak in downtown Columbia's historic Ebenezer Lutheran Church. Please come and enjoy an offering of Bach, Beer, and Friends under the influence of 'Goldberg Variations' and 'The Art of Fugue'!
