BENEFITING: BACH WEEK IN EVANSTON
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
Bach Week Festival's music director, Richard Webster (in costume as Prince William), will run the 2013 Chicago Marathon on Sunday October 13 to benefit the festival. Please pledge your support to Richard's Bach Week run!
He has run previous marathons as J.S. Bach, Paul Revere, Abraham Lincoln, Robin, The Cat in the Hat, the Easter Bunny, Robin Hood and a bumble bee.
Join us as at 2:30pm that that same day for "A Musical Afternoon with Susanna Phillips" at North Park University in Chicago. One of today's most sought-after singers, opera sensation Susanna Phillips headlines the annual fundraiser for the Chicago area's Bach Week Festival. Along with irresistible music by festival namesake J.S. Bach, you'll hear a poignant piece by Franz Schubert, performed by Ms. Phillips, with Larry Combs, longtime principal clarinetist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and pianist Elizabeth Buccheri, assistant conductor at Lyric Opera and the Chicago recitalist of choice for many marquee singers. "A Musical Afternoon with Susanna Phillips" is a special opportunity to hear the singer's famously "gleaming" soprano voice (The Boston Globe) in a venue far more intimate than an opera house or symphony hall. Aspiring classical vocalists take note: you can bid on the opportunity to "sing with Susanna" at this very concert through an online auction benefiting Bach Week.
