A Special Concert July 10

Our church hosts a very special concert at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 10. And it’s free. Hekun Wu will play two solo Bach Cello Suites as part of his preparation to play all six Bach Suites at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, Johann Sebastian Bach’s own church!

You may remember Hekun as a music department faculty member at Willamette University; I also remember him as the best cellist ever to have lived in Salem. After Willamette University, he took a position at a new university in China; he now shares time between Lake Oswego and China.

One of my friends quoted to me that Bach is the only composer who deserves to be played in the presence of God. That’s bad musicology, and even worse theology, but Bach’s music is special. Come listen!
