Bach's Magnificant and Ein fest Burg with Elgin Master Chorale

Elgin Master Chorale opens its season with Bach’s Magnificat as well as his beloved Ein fest burg, in recognition of the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation. These works stem from man’s desire to connect more closely with the divine, and have proved transformational since their creation. Opening the concert will be the Elgin Master Chorale Children’s Chorus, performing pieces by Bach as well as other composers.

Kyra Saltman & Amanda Grimm

Join Glenwood Music for their first family concert in Andersonville, Duets through Time! You may have heard Beethoven’s music before, but have you ever thought about what his life was like? In this hour long concert, you’ll hear music and imagine what it was like to live in 1796 (hint: they had eyeglasses back then, because Beethoven wrote a piece about them). You’ll also discover music by Boccherini, Hindemith, Piazzolla and many others! Join us for a casual afternoon of time-traveling through chamber music. Suggested donation $10 for adults, $5 for children. 

Performers: Amanda Grimm, viola and Kyra Saltman, cello
