Meeting with Ken Stancer

Marika just had a very productive meeting with Ken Stancer, the music director and organist at St. Andrew’s. She got a tour of the beautifully renovated church, and worked out some more logistics for the big event on the 18th (NEXT WEEK!).

The lovely Parish Hall, downstairs from the Sanctuary, will be a space where audience members can take a break from the performances; there will be coffee and tea, snacks, wifi, and comfortable chairs and sofas.

BATC is so grateful to St. Andrew’s for making their facilities available for this event!

Interview on WORT 89.9 FM

BATC Director Marika Fischer Hoyt went on community radio station WORT, to chat with host Alan Muirhead about the upcoming festival, and play recordings of a few of the pieces that will be heard at the March 18 event.

The interview was streamed on facebook live; click here to access the BATC facebook page where the footage is a little ways down the page.

Thank you to Farley’s House of Pianos!

Farley’s House of Pianos has generously agreed to make available a Steinway grand piano for use during Bach Around The Clock.

Not only will solo pianists appreciate being able to perform on this instrument, but duo pianists will now also be able to participate.

Thank you, Farley’s, for helping bring the music of J.S. Bach to the Madison community.
