The Berkshire Bach Society presents “Bach at New Year’s” with a program of all six of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti at three locations in our region: Monday, December 30 at 3 p.m. at the Academy of Music in Northampton, Massachusetts; Tuesday, December 31 at 6 p.m. at The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington, Massachusetts; and Wednesday, January 1 at 3 p.m. at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy, New York.

Berkshire Bach Ensemble Director and soloist, Eugene Drucker, violinist and Co-Founder of the Emerson String Quartet joined us.

The Berkshire Bach Society returns this Saturday afternoon with a concert at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House in Housatonic, Massachusetts. Back by popular demand, organ-master Peter Sykes will showcase the 1893 Johnson Organ, a hidden gem of the Berkshires, playing works by J.S. Bach and Bach’s idol, the great organ master Dieterich Buxtehude.

Peter Sykes has been described as “one of the major musical intellects and imaginations of our time.”
