Ashmont Hill Chamber Music to reboot in-person

Cellist Shirley Hunt, harpsichordist Frances Conover Fitch, and organist Andrew Sheranian will feature in The Bach Project's "Most Loved Solo Instrumental Music" concert.

After a more than a year long hiatus, Ashmont Hill Chamber Music will return with its first in-person live music event of the season this Sunday, May 16 at 4:00 p.m. at All Saints Church.

The Bach Project concert will be open to a small in-person audience of ticketholders, and will also be available for viewing online, free of charge. Masking and social distancing will be required for the in-person audience.

The concert, titled “Most Loved Instrumental Music,” will feature three works by Bach written for three solo instruments: cello, harpsichord, and organ. Shirley Hunt will play the Suite No. 4 in E-flat major (BWV 1010) for baroque cello; Frances Conover Fitch will play Suite No. 5 in G major (BWV 816) for harpsichord; and Andrew Sheranian will play Trio Sonata No. 4 in E minor (BWV 528) and Fugue in G minor (BWV 578) for organ.

The Bach Project (Andrew Sheranian, director) is a collaborative endeavor between the music program at the Parish of All Saints Ashmont and Ashmont Hill Chamber Music. Now in its fourth season, the Bach Project exists to bring the music of Johann Sebastian Bach to audiences in Dorchester through live performances at All Saints’ Church in Ashmont.

Tickets to Sunday’s event will be $25 for adults, $18 for students; $3 for EBT Card Holders, and free for children under 13. To purchase tickets and for more information visit
