Christ Episcopal Church and Pacific MusicWorks present Bach’s Lunch, our third season of of FREE noontime concerts on the first Tuesday of every month, October through May. Bring your lunch and enjoy these informal concerts in Christ Church’s beautiful historic sanctuary in the heart of the U district. Join us for a 45 minute concert featuring some of the region’s finest musicians performing baroque to modern works, including many works by underrepresented composers.
This month, harpist Maxine Eilander and violinist Tekla Cunningham perform music from the salons of 1770s Paris, the intellectual, political, and cultural birthplace of the American and French revolutions. Featured composers include the Chevalier de Saint Georges, Anne Brillon de Jouy, and Zoe de la Rue.
