Masterworks Series

J. S. Bach had a love affair with the Italian style of music and thus created organ works based on Violin Concerti written by Antonio Vivaldi. Come hear how this enchanting music changed Bach's perspective on music, and how he was influenced by Vivaldi - nicknamed "The Red Priest" because he was ordained in 1704 and had red hair. You will also hear the stories between Bach and Vivaldi - a fun history lesson led by organist Michael Steven Lianos. All are invited to this free concert on Wednesday, April 5th, 1 p.m. at Saint Bede Catholic Church, 3686 Ironbound Road in Williamsburg. For more information, please call (757) 229-3631, or visit
