The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center brings its annual holiday tradition to Chicago. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos, each written for a different collection of instruments, show off the composer’s endless inventiveness and the musicians’ virtuosity—perfectly encapsulating all that Baroque music can achieve. Celebrate the holiday season with us while taking in all six of these unique, exuberant works.
