CONCORD, NH – At Concord Community Music School, we never miss a chance to celebrate our love for music and music-makers. The next two Bach’s Lunch programs, “Jazz Lives On and On! New Artists to Love in the New Decade” (Feb. 6) and “You Send Me…Musical Valentines” (Feb. 13) are the perfect opportunity to share the love – and the music – with faculty and friends!
On Thursday, February 6, at 12:10pm, Matt Langley presents a Bach’s Lunch Lecture, “Jazz Lives On and On! New Artists to Love in the New Decade.” Langley will discuss themes from “Playing Changes,” a book by music journalist & jazz aficionado Nate Chinen that explores jazz for the new century. Listen to some music from the jazz artists profiled in the book, and talk about the ways they continue to shape an ever-evolving musical style.
The following Thursday, February 13, at 12:10pm, join Peggo Horstmann Hodes, Kent Allyn, and special guest Paul Hodes, for their Bach’s Lunch Concert “You Send Me…Musical Valentines.” Peggo & Kent’s annual Valentine’s Day performance is always a delight. This year’s program – their 20th! – includes some of their favorite love songs with a happy ending, from title song You Send Me by Sam Cook to Rodgers & Hart's classic My Funny Valentine to Aerosmith'sDon't Want to Miss a Thing.
Bach’s Lunch programs are free and open to the public, and take place from 12:10pm to 12:50pm on the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through May, in the Music School’s Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord, NH.
The Bach’s Lunch Series is sponsored by The Timothy and Abigail B. Walker Lecture Fund.
