‘Back to Back Bach’ performance at the Taylor Community

LACONIA — Whether seated at the piano or standing before an orchestra, baton in hand, Vladimir Svoysky's approach to music is pure passion born from his formative years in his native Russia. Svoysky will perform the next concert of the 2013 Taylor Community Music Series "Back to Back Bach" on Saturday, September 21 at 7 p.m. in Taylor's Woodside Building.

Johann Sebastian Bach's genius produced some of the most beautiful music of all time. The results have been both lesson and inspiration to musicians for more than three centuries. Bach himself put it this way, "There is nothing so remarkable about it; one only need hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself."

The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration required as seating is limited. To RSVP call 524-5600 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
