The city was renowned for its praiseworthy crop of native composers, including Johann Adolf Hasse and Antonio Lotti. J.S. Bach&s brilliantly talented and wayward son, Wilhelm Friedemann, was an exceptional organist, while the fiercely gifted prodigy Johann Gottlieb Goldberg penned works so well written that for more than half a century they were thought to be written by J.S. Bach himself!Ticket Prices £16.00 / £13.50 (concessions) / £2 (under 18s)Booking informationTelephone 01282 661234In person, go to The Muni Box Office, Pendle Leisure Trust, Bank House, 61 Albert Road, Colne BB8 0BP
