Bill Eddins Plays Bach

Conducted by William Eddins
October 12 & 13 7:30 PM

You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Thursday, October 12th and Friday, October 13th evening concerts, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.

Bill Eddins returns with an entertaining concert full of surprises and delights, including two concerti by J. S. Bach – one with Olga (the Winspear Centre’s new harpsichord) and the other a jubilant triple concerto featuring ESO soloists. A fanfare for organ and brass and other thrilling works will showcase both the orchestra and the Winspear's crystal clear acoustics.
