Start the New Year in the best possible way...with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Performed in front of the inspiring stained glass windows of First Presbyterian Church, a quartet of soloists from La Follia will perform solo and chamber works of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Included are selections from the Goldberg Variations and the Cello Suite no. 6, the B minor Flute Sonata, and the Chaconne for solo violin. Also included are the trio sonata in G major and the Affetuoso from the Brandenburg Concerto no. 5.
Seating in the sanctuary will be reconfigured to not only bring the audience closer to the performers, but to also allow the beautiful stained glass windows to be an inspiring backdrop to the concert.
We can't imagine a better way to begin a New Year.
More on the First Presbyterian Church Stained Glass Windows
The stained glass windows are from the original location of First Presbyterian Church in downtown Austin. The present location is the fourth location. The windows were re-installed in this contemporary space in a way that honors tradition but yet brings it into our time to inspire us all again today.
