World renowned flutist, Renée Siebert, who joined the Conservatory of Music at Lynn University as a distinguished artist-in-residence in February 2008, will make her debut appearance as Lynn’s distinguished artist-in-residence at “Mostly Music: Bach,” 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 1, and 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Amarnick-Goldstein Concert Hall in the de Hoernle International Center on campus. Siebert will be performing Bach’s Suite No. 2 in B-minor.

Siebert, and other conservatory artist faculty, will pay tribute to the life of Johann Sebastian Bach in the two-night concert, “Mostly Music: Bach.” Conceived and hosted by Marshall Turkin and staged by Jan McArt, the presentation will acquaint the audience with the music, life and artistic development of the renowned Western composer.

Johann Sebastian Bach was considered old-fashioned during his lifetime for composing in the contrapuntal Baroque style, but is universally acclaimed today as one of the most honored and celebrated composers of any period in Western history.
