5/6/22: Conversations at the Meetinghouse at Unitarian Church of Sharon, MA (7:00 p.m)
“Bernie will introduce and explore the cosmos of Johann Sebastian Bach and provide examples and explanations of why he thinks Bach was the ‘Greatest Of All Time’. He will touch on technical music, history, religion, and his own experience. This is to be contrasted with a 2018 presentation about how and why Bernie came to admire him. He intends to play live and recorded music.
Bernie Greenberg has played the organ and studied harmony, counterpoint, and the life and works of Bach in particular for over 50 years, and composed contrapuntal music for the last 40, some of which has been performed in churches, including here. Although he studied organ briefly at various times, he is largely self-taught. In the last decade, he has taught composition and counterpoint to willing students on musescore.com.
Conversations at the Meetinghouse is a monthly program held the first Friday of each month (October to June) at 7pm where members of the community share their expertise and experience about important issues of the day”.
