The Philadelphia Orchestra In Concert On WRTI: An All-Bach Broadcast!

Bach specialist Nicholas McGegan conducts The Philadelphia Orchestra this Sunday, May 19th, 2 to 4 pm, in an all-Bach concert - bringing a special touch to the Orchestra, and throwing the spotlight on several Philadelphia Orchestra soloists.

Concertmaster David Kim, Principal Oboist Richard Woodhams, Principal Horn Jennifer Montone, and Principal Flute Jeffrey Khaner are just some of the stellar players of the Orchestra who will play major roles in a program including:

The Brandenburg Concertos 1, 3, and 4, the Double Violin Concerto, and the ever-popular Orchestral Suite No. 3, with its famous "Air on the G String" will reveal the joyous side of Bach's music, and should be a special treat.

During intermission, Susan Lewis will speak with Richard Woodhams, and Jim Cotter will discuss Bach's music with Maestro McGegan. Join us! That's this Sunday, May 19th, 2 to 4 pm.
