Bach's Birthday Recital

Today, Mom and I went to Bach's Birthday Recital at Trinity College Chapel.

The music was amazing.

John Tuttle played:
  • Toccata in F Major, BWV 678
  • Sonata No.  in C Minor, BWV 526
  • These are the Holy Ten Commandments, BWV 678
  • Passacaglia in C Minor, BWV 582

There were at least 150 people in attendance, maybe even more. All of the pews and chairs were filled and people were sitting on stairs and standing in the back.

The organ is up in the balcony at the back of the chapel.
It must be be very nice for the organist there because the congregation can't see you.

I took these pictures after the concert.

I wanted to get a picture of the crowd because I was really happy to see such a large group, but a lady told Mom to put away the cell phone/camera. She made it seem like cell phones weren't allowed at all. But, she didn't stop other people from taking pictures with their phones. It made us very uncomfortable and even though it was beautiful music the overall atmosphere wasn't very welcoming. It's never nice when you feel like you're being constantly watched.
