CLASSICAL | Finger Lakes Choral Festival 

2015 is the 330th anniversary of the birth of J.S. Bach, so we'll be hearing a lot of his music in the coming months. This is a good thing, of course. You can get a head start on the Bachanalia this weekend with the Finger Lakes Choral Festival, whose annual summer concert this year is devoted to Bach: the famous Magnificat, the Cantata No. 191, "Gloria in Excelsis Deo," the opening chorus of the Christmas Oratorio, and the mighty "Dona nobis pacem" that ends the Mass in B Minor. All of this music displays, in the words of FLCF conductor Adrian G. Horn, "the precision of a fine Swiss watch and the forward momentum of a locomotive." And you can hear it all free of charge.

"The Finger Lakes Choral Festival presents Bach," will be performed Sunday, July 27, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 N. Plymouth Avenue. 4 p.m. Free.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This choice has been updated to correct the number of years since Bach's birth. The year 2015 is the 330th anniversary of his birth.
