The BCO Presents 'Bach to the Future'
The Binghamton Community Orchestra performs Bach transcriptions by Leopold Stokowski, Erich Leinsdorf, and Gustav Holst on Saturday, November 18 at 7pm. Conductor Timothy Perry joins us to talk about the program, as well as STMTA Youth Soloist Tayler Otis, who is soloist for Camille Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No.2. Then the Madrigal Choir of Binghamton joins the orchestra for a selection from Bach's Cantata 80. The concert ends with the Grand Oratorio 'The Seasonings' by the oddest of JS Bach 20-odd children, PDQ Bach.
