Bach Rediscovered

On March 20, members and friends of the Tacoma AGO chapter gathered to enjoy an evening of music by Johann Sebastian Bach on the Fritts organ at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. Performers included Cheryl Drewes (Dean), Emma Kelly, Sheila Bristow (Past Dean), Michael Plagerman, and Dr. Wyatt Smith (Sub Dean). The program centered on recreating Felix Mendelssohn’s all-Bach recital at the Thomaskirche, Leipzig in 1840.

Members were also treated to a lovely reception following the recital (thank you Sandy, Dick, and Jan), along with a CD giveaway (thank you Michael) much . Many treasures were uncovered from those boxes!

Finally, many thanks to St. Andrew’s, Naomi Shiga, and Jonathan Wohlers for being such gracious hosts for this event.
