Juno Orchestra: Bach

October 8 @ 2:30 pm

The Brattleboro Music Center’s Juno Orchestra, the region’s ‘home team’ chamber orchestra, presents a program in October reminiscent of popular Bach programs that enthralled local audiences in the past.

The concert, set for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, October 8, at Persons Auditorium in Marlboro, features the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as works by his son and by Handel. As Juno founder Zon Eastes explains, “This concert recalls the wonder of the New England Bach Festival, often presented this same weekend years ago, and created by Brattleboro Music Center founder Blanche Moyse. The works to be performed were often part of the Festival program.”

Eastes adds, “I’m inspired by the promise of this concert. The music is particularly uplifting, heartening, and engaging, and we also look forward to collaborating with three talented, soloists, each with deep associations with this community.”

The October performance will include George Frideric Handel’s Concerto Grosso in A minor, Op. 6, No. 4, and then spotlight works by Johann Sebastian Bach. They include Ich habe genug, BWV 82, featuring Grammy-nominated baritone Randall Scarlata, and Concerto for Oboe and Violin, BWV 1060 with Jennifer Slowik, oboe, and Kathy Andrew, violin.

The program also will include a work by the master composer’s son, Carl Philippe Emmanuel Bach, titled Sinfonia in B-flat Major, Wq. 182, No. 2.

Revealing new and recent compositions while also presenting less well-known and time-honored masterworks, Juno invites curious audiences to find the connection, to discover the spark. Under the direction of Eastes, two central values underpin Juno’s work: exploration and collaboration.
