Bach Choir Greg Funfgeld Family Concert is “Dancing with Bach”


The Bach Choir of Bethlehem will present “The Greg Funfgeld Family Concert: Dancing with Bach,” a fusion of music and dance, on Feb. 18.

The Greg Funfgeld Family Concert builds on artistic collaboration each season and showcases the unique gifts and talents of each organization to create something larger and more glorious than either could do on its own.

This season, The Bach Choir and Bach Festival Orchestra are joined by the dance departments of Muhlenberg College and The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts in performance of new work choreographed to the music of Bach and Brahms. They also welcome Conductor Emeritus Greg Funfgeld and Steinway artist Eugene Abulescu for “a performance on piano four hands.”

This concert will take place at 3 p.m. Feb. 18, in Baker Hall at Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University in Bethlehem. Tickets: $18 Students $9 –

The energetic and visually engaging program includes: J.S. Bach, “Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C Major – BWV 1066”; Maurice Ravel, “Mother Goose Suite”; Johannes Brahms, “Liebeslieder Waltzes, Op. 52”; and J.S. Bach: Lobet den Herrn, BWV 230.”

“As this is our family concert, we aimed to bring together all facets of our Bach Choir family for this special performance. We are thrilled to have selected members of the Bel Canto Concert Choir who will join us in learning and performing this challenging repertoire,” said Artistic Director and Conductor Christopher Jackson.

“We are excited to share this magical experience with our audience, where Bach’s compositions are brought to life through the graceful movements of dancers. It’s a concert that brings together the joy of music and the beauty of dance.”

The Greg Funfgeld Family Concert offers young people in the audience an introduction to performance and classical music in a welcoming and convivial atmosphere that makes the audience feel at home.
