The Fox Valley Chapter of the American Guild of Organists will be presenting the 22nd annual "Bach and Beyond" Organ Concert on Friday, July 30.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Marmion Abbey, 850 Butterfield Road (Route 56) in Aurora.

 

Twelve local organists will be playing music composed by the German Late Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach Bach, Danish Baroque composer Dieterich Buxtehude, French Baroque composer François Couperin, and others on the abbey's magnificent Martin Ott pipe organ, one of the finest organs in the Fox Valley area.

There is no cost to attend, but there will be a freewill offering to support scholarships for young organists. All are welcome!
