Drawing the inspiration from Bing Thom’s campus design concept of “Treehouse of Knowledge”, this concert series features a unique program that illustrates the genius of JS Bach and how his music influences centuries of composers from the early days to the mid-20th century.

The two-day program starts with the first concert featuring JS Bach’s Inventions arranged for String Trio, followed by the second concert performing Haydn’s Sunrise Quartet and a third presenting two works by his son CPE Bach and Mozart. On the second day, the composer’s influence will be exemplified by another three concerts featuring works of Central Europe, Western Europe and Eastern Europe.

In addition to this interesting musical journey curated by Artistic Director Trey Lee, audiences will also get to sample this gorgeous campus suspending above the Grade 3 heritage buildings that weaves into the contours of Mount Davis.

Join us in this Musicus Fest Opening event and meet great artists in an intimate setting that you will never forget!
