On May 22nd and 23rd, Early Music Seattle and Seattle Baroque Orchestra will undertake one of its biggest projects to date – performances of ALL SIX of J. S. Bach’s legendary Brandenburg Concertos.  Presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, in 1721, over time these works have become a touchstone for period performance ensembles as they present all principal players with exiting solo opportunities. Presenting all six in an evening is challenging in every way, including financial for Early Music Seattle. The project has already received overall sponsorship by longtime supporters Marcia and Klaus Zech, and Board member Jim Hessler and his wife Paula Weiss-Hessler have stepped up to sponsor concerto #6.  Would you like to join them by sponsoring one of the other five concertos?  A sponsorship of $2,500 for each will secure this project for Early Music Seattle and help ensure the organization’s financial health in this challenging season.  Contact Operations Director Ann Stickney (ann@earlymusicseattle.org) to discuss your role in this ambitious project!
