Sunday Afternoons Live presents last installment

First Congregational Church’s concert series, Sunday Afternoons Live, comes to a close on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. with Music of Bach’s Time and Our Time.

The program features Masayuki Maki on harpsichord playing music composed by J. S. Bach, his teacher Georg Böhm and his son, C. P. E. Bach.

As a counterpoint, there will also be harpsichord music composed by current composers, such as the Dutch composer Louis Andriessen and the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu.

A multi-instrumentalist on various classical keyboard instruments, Masayuki Maki has extensive experience in lecturing and performing in America and Asia.

He is currently an adjunct faculty member at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College of the City University of New York. Maki often performs in prestigious concert venues such as Carnegie Hall, China’s Forbidden City Concert Hall and Japan’s Suntory Hall. He is currently completing his doctorate in harpsichord at Stony Brook where he is also Assistant Director of the Stony Brook Opera.

This year’s season of  Sunday Afternoons Live season was underwritten by the late Stella Miazga, who posthumously bequeathed funds to support the series after her death.

First Congregational Church is located at 108 Sound Beach Avenue. The concert will be held in the church’s Meetinghouse. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available at the door, and all school-aged youth are free.
