 Saturday, April 2, 2016 4:30pm – Baroque Brilliance: Bach’s Journey – Reserve Your Seat 

In 1705, J.S. Bach, then a young man of twenty, walked from Arnstadt to Lübeck, a distance of more than 250 mi, and stayed nearly three months to study with Dieterich Buxtehude, and, as Bach explained, “to comprehend one thing and another about his art.”  Follow in Bach’s footsteps as you encounter the music that inspired his artistic development, and experience the masterpieces he was stirred to compose during this pivotal time in his life.  The exquisite artistry of the Long Beach Camertata Singers and Musica Angelica will transport you to the past with inspiring performances of these rare musical gems! Performed at The LBCC auditorium. Tickets $40/$30/$10 (student)
