Cellist Suren Bagratuni brings to life Johann Sebastian Bach’s Six Cello Suites in honor of his 339th birthday. These highly regarded compositions are considered the most celebrated and immortalized instrumental works and Bach’s greatest musical achievement. With each suite containing six movements, they are a musical marathon that takes the audience on a dance-like journey of classical Baroque.

Generously sponsored by Dr. Robert W. Uphaus, Dr. Lois M. Rosen, and Nancy and Charlie Seebeck.
