Bach Ensemble returns for 11th season

The concert will feature selections from two of Bach’s church cantatas

The Victoria Bach Ensemble launches its 11th season with a program of instrumental and vocal works.

Along with such perennial favourites as the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, the concert will feature selections from two of Bach’s church cantatas, and the world premiere of Michael Drislane’s new version of The Musical Offering for winds, strings and harpsichord.

The Musical Offering was dedicated to King Frederick the Great, and is one of Bach’s finest late works and a six-part fugue.

The concert takes place at Church of St. John the Divine, 1611 Quadra St., on April 18 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets available at the door.
