An Evening of J.S. Bach with Friends
As part of the Austin College Homecoming activities for 2013, Music Department faculty Dr. Ricky Duhaime will once again assemble performing forces consisting of generations of alumni, current students and faculty, and professional colleagues, for an Evening of J.S. Bach with Friends. The concert will be presented in Wynne Chapel on the Austin College campus and will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the installation of the Aeolian-Skinner concert organ (one of the premiere examples of its kind in the Southwest) as well as the 15th anniversary of the donation to the college of the Flemish double harpsichord, built by Austin College alumnus Gerald Self (class of 1970). Among the performers for the evening will be former Austin College First Lady Anna Laura Page and the current A Cappella Choir, under the direction of Austin College alumnus Justin Duncan.
The program for the concert will consist of Cantata No. 80, "A Mighty Fortress is Our God," complete with Bach's own organ prelude, Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, and a new edition of Cantata No. 55, the only solo cantata for tenor and chamber orchestra Bach wrote, featuring Austin College faculty member Wayne Crannell.
This concert will be given in memorium of the late Sarah Bernice Mosely, who was a great supporter and friend of Austin College and the Community Series.
