DALLAS - Birthdays are often celebrated at local breweries, and this year J.S. Bach’s birthday is no exception. Lumedia Musicworks celebrates in signature style, performing party hits of 1720 live on historical instruments. Pegasus City Brewery gets in on the fun with its special beer release “19 Block Bock”. Beverage purchases benefit the nonprofit.
“This concert is an unusual curation of Bach’s brighter side,” said Molly Hammond, harpsichordist. “We handpicked light-hearted arias, sonatas, and duets from unexpected larger works. A few may be familiar, but all should bring a smile.”
The ensemble performs on instruments that were made to look and sound like the ones performed during Bach’s time. The program selections vary from one solo performer to twenty, due to a cameo appearance by Inspirata Ensemble.
“Two of our singers, Jendi Tarde and Derrick Brown, will be stepping out from behind their usual directorial roles at Lumedia,” said Julianna Emanski, Artistic Director and Grammy-nominated vocalist. “We also welcome some new instrumentalists to the roster: Nuria Canales from Austin and Leonardo Lima from Houston.”
Lumedia Musicworks is a 501(c)3 non profit performing arts organization committed to presenting early classical music in creative ways.
