This month the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra will perform a special rendition of “J.S. Bach: Sacred and Secular, Vocal and Instrumental” in three performances, April 20, 22 and 23.
Talented soprano Julianne Baird, conductor and flutist Barthold Kuijken, and IBO competition winner August McKay on the violin, will all participate.
The program presented by the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra will show the two sides of the master of all Baroque masters, Johann Sebastian Bach. With great agility, the orchestra and soloist provide an overview of J.S. Bach’s dual personalities, juxtaposing sacred and secular music, as well as vocal and instrumental.
The program is presented three times in central Indiana, the first performance occurring in a co-presentation with the University of Indianapolis Music Department in the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center, University of Indianapolis, 1400 E. Hanna Avenue, at 7:30 p.m. April 20.
The second performance takes place in Richardson Chapel on the campus of Franklin College, Franklin, Indiana, at 7:30 p.m., April 22, made possible through the generous support of the Franklin Symphonic Council.
The series concludes at 7:30 p.m. on April 23, at the new performance home of IndyBaroque Music, Inc., the Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue, Indianapolis.
General admission is $20, seniors $15, and students $10.
Of special note is that the University of Indianapolis performance on April 20 is free to all UIndy faculty, staff, and students, while the Franklin College performance on the 22nd is free to all, thanks to underwriting by the Franklin Symphonic Council.
