Happy listening to Bach played on the organ

On Thursday 17th August, Jacob Collins played all four of his instruments (Violin, Piano, Viola and Organ) at SMSG for an enjoyable and welcome lunchtime concert.

He played quite a variety of pieces ranging from Bach's Toccata & Fugue to The Entertainer by Scot Joplin. The wonderful music was captivating, beautiful, exciting, peaceful, majestic, elegant, and enjoyable.

The programme was as follows:

  • Jacob playing Bach on the viola
