Bach and Beyond
Winthrop University’s International Organ Series brings to campus two German musicians who share a Leipzig connection for the March 25 event “Bach and Beyond — the Leipzig Organ Tradition.” Christoph Wolff, the greatest living authority on J.S. Bach, and Stefan Engels, an expert on the works of Sigfrid Karg-Elert, will delight and inform organ and music enthusiasts during a master class, lecture and recital on the famed D.B. Johnson Memorial Organ. The events are made possible through the Friends of D.B. Johnson Memorial Organ Performance Fund, established by Hazel Bailes Somerville ’69 and her husband, Murray, in 2015, and the German Language and Cultural Foundation in Charlotte, North Carolina.
