43rd Annual Abbey Bach Festival

Friday, July 25

Program and Artists subject to change.

8 PM Damian Center

We are sorry to announce that the previously announced performers, Marcia Hadjimarkos and Julianne Baird, are unable to perform at the festival this year.

We are very pleased to present:

Clavecin en concert

Luc Beauséjour, artistic director and harpsichord

Grégoire Jeay, flute

Elinor Frey, cello

Odéi Bilodeau Bergeron, soprano

An inspired harpsichordist and organist of peerless elegance and expressiveness, Luc Beauséjour never lacks ideas for fascinating concert programs distinguished by refinement and authenticity. With his engaging personality and eloquence he is sought out not only for his virtuosity but also for his ease in communicating with every kind of audience.
