A few months ago, The Sound Bridge Project, a group of musicians dedicated to bringing classical music to unexpected environments, approached me about collaborating on an event to celebrate the bawdy side of Bach. The idea was to bring a variety of musicians together to play an array of Bach arrangements both as they were classically intended, as well contemporary interpretations.
And what, might you ask, would my contribution be to a night like this? WIGS, of course! Any opportunity to turn a party into a baroque/powdered wig throwdown, well. I’m ready to drop it like it’s Bach.

You should have seen me driving to the event in this 3′ wide hairdo. Yes, my head was out the window, and I had no peripheral vision. Lucky the club was close!
