 7 AM - 11 AM
 
Sunday Baroque
For a long time after Johann Sebastian Bach died, his music wasnt popular or even well known. But a woman who studied music with Bachs son and owned some Bach manuscripts introduced her great-nephew to Bachs music. The nephew was composer Felix Mendelssohn, and the performance he organized of Bachs ST. MATTHEW PASSION reignited interest in in the forgotten musician. Sunday Baroque will feature selections from that pivotal work.
