Concerts on the Canal: Bach and Friends


We welcome soprano singer, Mary Hubbell, and pianist, and harpsichord player, Greg Hayes. In this session, we talked about their upcoming concert, “Bach and Friends”, where they will be performing “The Wedding Cantata” (BWV 202) by J. S. Bach. This free event will also feature other pieces, like the Oboe Sonata in C minor by Giovanni Platti, a contemporary of Bach’s, as well as selections from the “Schemelli Songbook,” a collection of favorite devotional songs from Bach’s era.
