FEBRUARY 23, 2016--SAN FRANCISCO--To honor their namesake's March 21 birthday and celebrate March 2016 as Early Music Month, the American Bach Soloists announce a special concert on March 18 by organist and ABS co-founder Jonathan Dimmock.
An internationally acclaimed recitalist, Dimmock is currently the organist for the San Francisco Symphony and principal organist at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. He holds the unique distinction of having been the only American to be an Organ Scholar of Westminster Abbey and is one of the few organists in the world to tour on six continents. Dimmock will perform an all-Bach program that celebrates the master's genius as composer for "the king of instruments." Performing on one of the Bay Area's most treasured tracker organs, he will perform favorites such as the E Minor Prelude & Fugue ("Wedge") and the Toccata & Fugue in D Minor (“Dorian”), along with a few lesser-known yet brilliant works.
March 2016 is “Early Music Month,” a new, nationwide, grassroots initiative sponsored by Early Music America to highlight the artistry and contributions of Early Music performers, scholars, and instrument builders. In celebration of the occasion, ABS is pleased to showcase the music of Johann Sebastian Bach with this special concert. #EarlyMusicMonth2016
Discounted tickets available for students (21 and under with Valid ID). Please call the ABS Office, (415) 621-7900.
