Miller to perform Bach recital
Organist Charles Miller will perform a recital of the works of J.S. Bach on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at National City Christian Church (5 Thomas Circle, N.W.) where he’s minister of music.
The event will consist of Miller’s all-time Bach organ favorites such as the “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor,” “Vivace” from the Trio Sonata in G Major and famous settings of Bach pieces by late gay organist Virgil Fox. Miller, too, is openly gay.
The concert is planned to celebrate the composers 327th birthday. It’s a benefit to restore the church’s five-manual pipe organ which was damaged in last year’s earthquake. A $20 donation is suggested. Go to nationalcitycc.org for details.
