Event Details:

Join us for a celebration of the master's 322nd birthday with a musical party, featuring Bach family videos, a wig tossing contest, and an intimate performance of several of his wonderful Brandenburg Concerti. Featuring the award-winning Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra and their music director, Benjamin Simon, this evening will be an opportunity to brush up on your Bach trivia, have a fugue explained to you, and learn the names of all of Bach's twenty-plus offspring. Those attending in period costume are eligible for valuable door prizes!
