You are invited to to a party.
To mark the 40th anniversary of the first Bach cantata concert, the City Bach Collective will perform cantatas BWV 61 & 62 at a lunchtime concert this Friday, 11 November. The concert will be hosted by the associated concert series Music-at-Hill at the church of St. Mary-at-Hill where the series began with Peter Lea-Cox taking his RAM students through BWV 38 on 11 November 1976. Admission is free with a retiring collection. It is also a great opportunity for those who don’t usually make it into the City at weekends to hear the City Bach Collective perform.
