 A Goldberg Variation

Presented by: Washington Bach Consort

The future of music is at risk, and only a distant future relative of one of Bach's students can save it. Dr. John Goldberg travels back from the 22nd century to teach children about a precious resource that we have in our time that gone missing in his: classical music. With a focus on the music of J.S. Bach, this program will teach children about many of the important musical building blocks and will empower them to change the future of music though their own listening and appreciation.
