Annual Bach Birthday Concert

Sunday, March 21st, 2021, 2:00pm

Due to the pandemic that restricted large gatherings, our early spring concert celebrating the 335th birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach was postponed. We are hopeful that this stellar event can be rescheduled for March 2021. The Appleton Consort will perform some of Bach’s most beloved orchestral works including the Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major, the Violin Concerto in A Minor, Sinfonia from Cantata Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbatas, Sinfonia from Cantata Mer Hahn en neue Oberkeet, the Harpsichord Concerto No. 5 in F minor, and the Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F major. Each piece will be performed on period instruments and according to the instrumentation that Bach intended. Event details subject to change.

Harry Hinlian

The 2021 summer music series is dedicated in memory of the late Harry Hintlian, a former GMF board member, philanthropist, and avid environmentalist. Together with his wife Mary, Harry was a generous donor towards the ongoing preservation and improvement of the Meetinghouse. One of those gifts was three hectares of land, newly-planted with specialized trees in Costa Rica and managed by Reforest the Tropics. Founded by Harry Hintlian, RTT is the only United Nations sanctioned carbon sequestration project to permanently gather and sequester CO2. In addition to the Meetinghouse’s extensive insulation and energy conservation measures, this gift resulted in the historic building becoming one of the few “net zero,” or carbon neutral, examples in America.

Don’t forget!
