Salish Sea Music Fest: Bach, Bach, and more Bach
The baroque orchestra “Simphonie Nouvelle” will present an evening of concerti on period instruments at the Grange Hall in Friday Harbor, Sunday Feb. 23, including flute and harpsichord concerti by “CPE” Bach and both the B Minor Suite and the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto by Johann Sebastian Bach, in the Salish Sea Early Music Festival’s commemoration of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s 300th birthday, which will be celebrated widely in Europe this year.
