10/12/2018, 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
St. Cecilia Music Center map
Marcelo Lehninger Conductor | Ellen Sherman Oboe
Johann Sebastian Bach, who flourished in the early 18th century, is revered as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, composer who ever lived. Nonetheless, Bach was influenced by the music of other composers such as Vivaldi. The German composer was so sufficiently impressed by Alessandro Marcello’s Concerto for Oboe that he took it upon himself to arrange it for solo keyboard. For this concert, though, Grand Rapids Symphony’s Ellen Sherman plays the original concerto for oboe, strings and continuo as written by the Venetian composer.
Join us for Talkback, a conversation featuring GRS musicians with casual and wide-ranging conversations related to the concert. This takes place from the stage immediately following the Friday evening concert.
Tune in to our concert rebroadcast on Blue Lake Public Radio on Sunday, March 17 at 1 pm.
Individual tickets start at $26 | Students $5
