Elmker going for ‘Baroque’ Tuesday
Pianist Werner Elmker is going for “Baroque” to celebrate J.S. Bach’s 332nd birthday with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Fairfield Arts & Convenion Center’s Stephen Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts.
J. S. Bach wrote some of the most beautiful music ever written. Still continuing to inspire and uplift 300 years later, his music has an amazingly modern flair. And Bach was one of the first “jazz” musicians because many of his pieces were improvisational.
This concert will draw upon Bach’s classical repertoire and other composers inspired by Bach, plus feature Elmker “going for Baroque” with a Bach-based improvisational flair. The grand Barhydt organ also will be fired-up for the performance.
Tickets to “Werner Elmker’s Bach Birthday Bash” are $12 general admission and are available at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center and online at FairfieldACC.com.
All proceeds will benefit the Sondheim theater and Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.
