Concert IV: Neighboring Bach

ALASTAIR WILLIS, Principal Conductor

Join The Symphonia and Principal Conductor Alastair Willis for New Directions: Neighboring Bach, at The Studio at Mizner Park, March 29, 2025.

In the spirit of Seeking Haydn and Vienna’s Riches, this installment of New Directions takes us back to Köthen, Germany, where the great Johann Sebastian Bach lived in 1723.

"Bach is widely considered by countless musicians to be the greatest composer of all time.  Discover why by traveling back with us to 1723 to experience what it was like to live next door to Bach and his family – as I did – and hear some of his most famous pieces played brilliantly by our Symphonia musicians, in a dramatic and historical context."

-Alastair Willis, Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor
