NASA once approached a famous musicologist and asked, “We’re planning to launch a rocket into deep space, and want to include a sample of music of Earth. What would you suggest we send?” He replied, “I would suggest the complete works of J.S. Bach, but that would be bragging.” – and how right he was. Johann Sebastian Bach wrote the book (literally and figuratively) on how music works. He explored and refined chord progressions, harmony, form, and much of the music theory we still use today, three hundred years later. Join us to learn about his world and some of his most monumental works!
