As part of the 2016 Macy’s Arts Sampler Weekend, cellist Nat Chaitkin presents Bach’s Kids, his fun, interactive solo show that explains what AC/DC stole from Beethoven, and what listening to James Brown can teach classical musicians.
A fun, interactive program for the whole family.
Bach had 20 kids, and still managed to write over 1000 pieces of music. He must have been very busy! In this program, we’ll get to know Bach’s cello music, and learn how his active home life might actually have helped him write his music. Along the way, I’ll share stories from playing at the White House, and we’ll also hear songs by Bruno Mars, Tito Puente and John Philip Sousa, and discover how all great music is put together the same way.
