One of the treasures that J.S. Bach (1685-1750) left behind was the set of Suites for Solo Cello, composed around the year 1720. There are six Bach Solo Cello Suites in all. Each has six movements. Since 1988 gifted amateur, student and professional cellists in our region have gathered around the time of Bach’s Birthday to play through all 36 movements.
This year the “Bach Suite Marathon” is again here at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church on Saturday March 24, 2012. This celebration is a Bach birthday bash like no other. The free event starts at 9AM and ends at about 12:30PM. Come for the entire morning or just drop by for a while. It’s a casual affair, open to all and free for all. (Donations accepted.)
