"Bach’s Mighty Fortress" will feature the magic of J.S. Bach: from one of his earliest cantatas to the majesty of “A Mighty Fortress is Our God,” where Bach added even more drama to the hymn written by Martin Luther during the Protestant Reformation.

The concert concludes with one of Bach’s famous Orchestra Suites, containing the famous “Air on the G String,” all performed on historical instruments that more faithfully recreate the sounds the composer would have worked with.
