The Brandenburg Concerti

Note: St. Paul’s Church unfortunately does not have an elevator and is only accessible by stairs. Please contact us to discuss accommodations.

We open our season with a performance of five of J. S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti. While these works are widely regarded as some of the most famous orchestral compositions of the baroque, their diverse instrumentation makes programming more than one concerto in a concert a rare occurrence, and on period instruments even more special.

Trumpeter John Thiessen was described by The New York Times as “the gold standard of Baroque trumpet playing in this country.” We’re thrilled to have John join our ensemble of exquisite soloists, which includes Priscilla Herreid, Meg Owens, David Ross, and others.
