Organ Recital, May 19

Concerts in observance of the 300th anniversary of the publication of Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier continue at Georgetown Lutheran Church on Sunday, May 19, at 4 pm. Organist Stephen Ackert will be joined by violinist Harold Byers to perform Ackert's arrangements for violin and organ of preludes and fugues from that famous collection. In addition, the program will include Bach's beloved Chaconne from the Partita in D Minor for solo violin, and a sonata for violin and keyboard by one of his contemporaries, Johann Georg Pisendel. The church’s tracker organ, built by Richard Howell, is tuned to a historic temperament that Bach would have identified as “well-tempered.” Admission is free, a free-will offering for the GLC music program will be collected. The church is at 1556 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Parking is free on Sundays.
