Salish Sea Early Music Festival presents Bach’s Flute Sonatas

  • Life

Flutist Jeffrey Cohan and harpsichordist Hans-Jürgen Schnoor will perform the sonatas for flute and harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach in Bach’s Flute Sonatas on Sunday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Orcas Adventist Fellowship Church at 107 Enchanted Forest Road in Eastsound, presented by the Salish Sea Early Music Festival.

Professor at the Conservatory of Music in Lubeck, Germany, and formerly organist at the St. Marien Kirche to which Bach walked for three days to hear Dietrich Buxtehude, Schnoor has performed the Goldberg Variations 120 times, perhaps more than any other living harpsichordist. Cohan is artistic director of the Salish Sea Early Music Festival and has worked with Schnoor for more than three decades.

Admission is by suggested donation: $15, $20 or $25 (a free will offering), and those 18 and under are free.
