June 1st - Musica Antiqua Performance at Central Washington University

On Sunday, June 1st at 4:00 pm, CWU Musica Antiqua musicians will present the third in this year's series of concerts of music associated with the Bach family. Not only the final concert of the Music Antiqua series, but the concluding concert of this academic year's Department of Music events, it will present the music of Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach, in his day the most famous of the Bach family musicians. His music reflects the changing tastes in European music, moving toward the classical style we now associate with Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. The program includes chamber music for various combinations of instruments: two orchestral sinfonias, a sonata for organ, a sonata for violin and harpsichord, and a sonata for the unusual combination of flute, viola and harpsichord.  The latter will feature faculty performers Hal Ott, Tim Betts and Margret Gries.  This free concert will be held in the Central Washington University Music Building Recital Hall.  For more information or for persons of disability to arrange for reasonable accommodations, contact Hal Ott at (509) 963-1103 or otth@cwu.edu.
