A family that plays together stays together! Johann Sebastian and his sons Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emanuel, and Johann Christian left a legacy of music that inspires all musicians. A few members of Bach's family will join us on stage courtesy of our friends at the Human Race Theatre Co. Come witness what it means to carry on the family business!
