Bach: the Boss of Western Classical Music? Superman of Strings? The Immortal who put Brandenburg on the map? The answer is: ALL OF THE ABOVE! Hear for yourself as OCMS kicks off its 2017 summer season with his Baroque masterpiece for strings (with a surprise second movement). And that’s just the beginning. This concert features 12 fantastic musicians (our biggest ensemble ever) in works from the 18th to the 20th century, including Golijov’s homage to Astor Piazzolla—mashing up sultry tango rhythms, boxing, and the breathing-in-and-out of a bandoneón.
