The Annisquam Village Church presents violinist Scott Moore in the second of a three-part series of Bach Sonatas and Partitas this Sunday, April 24 at 3 PM. Moore, the newly appointed  Artist-in-Residence at the Village Church, has already won a following for his Bach playing (not to mention a fan-base built on his performances in bluegrass, folk, rock, and other idioms). AVC Music Director, Kathleen Adams adds, “These brilliant works demand technical virtuosity, yes, and Scott has that in spades, but his playing here reaches into the senses and emotions in a way that one can rarely experience. It’s a fusion of Bach with time and place ….not reproducible.”

The historic Annisquam Village Church provides the ideal acoustic for chamber music, combining antique intimacy with its unique resonance. After the first concert of the series, an audience member exclaimed “He could play in Carnegie Hall!” Another replied, “Yes, but it sounds best here!” Located at the head of Lobster Cove at 820 Washington Street (corner of Washington and Leonard streets) the 1830’s clapboard building was recently renovated, with new facilities for those with disabilities, including a ‘lift’ to the Cove Room where a reception follows the concert. All are welcome! Donations gratefully accepted.

The third (and final) concert in the Bach series takes place May 22.
