Event Details

WHEN: Friday, January 11, 2019 | 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: St. Paul's Episcopal Church | 228 South Pitt Street in Alexandria, VA
TICKETS: $40 per person, $5 for youth | Tickets may be purchased online here.

If you're not familiar with the Brandenburg Concertos by Bach, they are shorter (from approximately 12 to 24 minutes) pieces that will be performed by a select group of the entire symphony orchestra. They are universally considered some of the best compositions of the Baroque period. This would be a great starter performance for getting someone interested in classical music -- and think about the great food and drinks afterward!
