Bach Birthday Bash 2023!

James Kennerley, Portland Municipal Organist

Join James Kennerley, Portland’s Eleventh Municipal Organist, as we celebrate the birthday of the greatest composer for organ, Johann Sebastian Bach. According to contemporary accounts, he was able to play music with his two feet that many musicians struggled to do with their ten fingers. Born on March 21, 1685, Bach’s music has captured the minds of audiences for generations ever since. His organ music, in particular, has held a tremendous sway over listeners and performers alike. This is truly music that delights the spirit and nourishes the soul.
