Thanks everyone for coming and especially to David for hosting! I really had a great time and hope you did, too. If you'd like to receive monthly concert announcements, please send me your email at https://monicachew.com/#contact or [email protected].
For your amusement, here is a recording of Handel's 62 variations on the first 8 notes of the Goldberg ground bass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJecU5LZR90

Here's a more fluid recording of the Handel:
Dear friends, you are in for a special treat tonight! Our esteemed host David has agreed to play some canons by Bach (only discovered in 1974) with me as a pre-Goldberg appetizer! Though, technically as they are based on the first 8 notes of the Goldberg bass, they are also Goldberg canons (BWV 1078).
Doors open at 7:30, music will begin by 8pm sharp or when everyone arrives, whichever happens first. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!
