JS Bach Birthday Celebration featuring The Women of Vivaldi
Tuesday, March 24
Kleinhans Music Hall, 7:00 pm
We celebrate the birthday of one of the greatest composers of all time with a vocal program featuring the Women of Vivaldi highlighting many of Buffalo’s best classical singers — including Female Tenors, Baritones and Basses and joined by Dr. Abigail Rockwood Puehn on harpsichord.
The Women of Vivaldi was founded in 2018 by Suzanne Fatta to promote early music in the Buffalo/ Niagara area, and is one of the few full all-female choirs in the nation. Their performances aim to re-create the soundworld of Antonio Vivaldi’s Venice, but tonight they pay tribute to Bach in a fun, birthday atmosphere!
