The 2016-2017 concert series at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church opens on October 28 at 7:00 PM with Christa Rakich, director of music at The Catholic Church of St. Mark the Evangelist in West Hartford, Ct. She will be playing Bach on organ and harpsichord, including part of the Goldberg Variations.
A prizewinner at international organ competitions (notably Bruges 1976), Rakich has received particular acclaim for her interpretations of the music of J.S. Bach. With keyboardist Peter Sykes, she performed a complete cycle of Bach’s keyboard works in a series of 34 concerts from 2003 to 2005 aptly named “Tuesdays with Sebastian.” Christa Rakich is a founding member of Ensemble Duemila, and performs regularly with the Fanfare Consort. As a soloist, she performs under the aegis of Independent Concert Artists.
