Big Moose Bach Fest VIII Turns to Jazz and Themes of Good and Evil
Labor Day Weekend is once again the occasion for Bach, this year jazzing it up on Saturday, September 2, at 4 pm, with a video presentation “Jazz up the Sinfonias” followed by a movie on the life of Bach.
The final concert will take place on Sunday afternoon, September 3, also at 4 pm. Both events take place at the Medallion Opera House in Gorham, a co-sponsor of the festival. An unusual feature of the annual Bach Fest is that the events are free, with donations to Music in the Great North Woods, which closes out its summer offerings with this signature event. The Sunday program will include three cantatas on life and death, good and evil, with a chorus, soloists and orchestra of Baroque strings and recorders under the direction of Dr. Susan Ferré.
