The first program in the Northern Neck Orchestra’s four-part music appreciation video series, “Music with Michael Repper,” features a review of the Baroque period through the groundbreaking music of Johann Sebastian Bach.
The free talk, “Bach and the Baroque Era,” can be viewed on YouTube (www.youtube.com/channel/UC-4n9XZ6wGVFqdh7njwVrlw). All videos in the series will be available continuously following their initial release.
Hosted by Northern Neck Orchestra Music Director Michael Repper, the program examines the cultural, philosophical and scientific context of Bach’s compositions during the Age of Enlightenment, discusses how the period shaped his music and features a performance of his work.
The video features a performance of Bach’s Chaconne by Northern Neck Orchestra violinist Wanchi, accompanied by Repper at the piano.
A performer of chamber music, soloist, orchestra musician and recording artist, Wanchi is a professor of music at James Madison University.
