Bach organ recital at Community Church

Internationally acclaimed organist James Welch will present a recital Friday evening at the Aspen Community Church titled “Bach — By Popular Demand.”

The program includes Bach’s Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major as well as other Bach showpieces. The program, which is free, will conclude with Belgian composer Joseph Jongen’s Toccata.

Welch, the organist at Santa Clara University, has made Aspen a regular stop on his world tours, giving annual performances on the Community Church’s majestic pipe organ. Installed in 1999, the organ is made up of 1,791 pipes from the size of a pencil to over 16 feet long.

The performance will begin at 6:30 p.m.
