Toccata bringing Bach back for South Shore show

Lake Tahoe Action

The Orchestra and Community Choirs of the Tahoe Area played their first concert at Squaw Valley earlier this summer.

Bach is basically back this week: The Orchestra and Community Choral Artists of the Tahoe Area continue their third annual summer Music Fest with the Basically Bach concerts. The series includes one South Shore appearance, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 18, at St. Theresa Catholic Church.

Maestro James Rawie conducts all concerts. Basically Bach includes Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Trumpets (Mark Lord and William Van Meter) in D Major, as well as Bach’s “Brandenburg” Concerto No. 2 in F Major with Lord, Marianne Maytan on oboe and Toni Healy on flute. Jacklynn Lord and the Lords’ daughter, Michelle, a soprano, will perform several original compositions for soprano, bass and piano.

The concert concludes with Bach’s Cantata No. 51 for soprano, trumpet, strings and continuo.

The first concert in the series, at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15, at Trinity Episcopal church in Reno marks the Reno premiere of the Vivaldi concerto. Toccata also will perform Basically Bach at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17, at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Incline Village.
