CHARLESTON– Saturday, May 11, 2019

4:00 PM in the Chapel of Bishop Gadsden, Charleston, SC free concert, but please let me know you’re coming so I can put your name on the list.

Louise Dubin, Philippe Muller and Katie Schlaikjer play Bach Suites 3,4 and 6 tomorrow. Free concert at St. Paul’s Chapel @TrinityWallSt!

Three of J. S. Bach’s solo cello suites performed in one of the best acoustical spaces in Manhattan, the landmark St. Paul’s Chapel (1766!). If you love the cello, and Bach, you won’t want to miss this one! Reception after the performance.  More info here: https://www.trinitywallstreet.org/events/day?day=2019-04-07&nid=18590

St. Paul’s is a special place for New Yorkers.  It survived the 9/11 attacks (miraculously, given its vicinity to the WTC) and became a ministry and oasis for the workers who had the endless horror-filled task of working through the debris.  I was a grad student at IU in September 2011, but I was back in NYC that day to play with the NJSO, so witnessed the strikes first-hand: first on my way to Newark, and when train service into NY were finally restored, in Manhattan.  I visited St. Paul’s months later and was so deeply moved by what they were doing that I wrote this article: https://blogdaysofauguste.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/e2b83-2014-06-29_louise_wtc_article.pdf
