Bach@7: Musical Gems By The Baroque Master Performed Near Rittenhouse Square

J.S. Bach’s masterpieces, well-known to many listeners, include his Mass in B minor, the Goldberg Variations, and The Well-Tempered Clavier. However, as WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the Baroque composer also wrote hundreds of lesser-known, short, vocal works with instrumental accompaniment, which are now the focus of a Philadelphia Bach Cantata series, called "Bach@ 7." The series features informal, one-hour long, pay-as-you-wish live concerts played on period instruments - modeled after similar series in Europe and New York.

The next "Bach@7" concert: Wednesday, March 19th at St. Mark's Episcopal Church at 1625 Locust Street near Rittenhouse Square.
