An all-Bach concert because Bach’s music was a game-changer. Bach’s combinations of instruments in the Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites are considered by some to be the origin of what we now consider a symphony. Music Director David Itkin will lead the orchestra from the harpsichord for Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 and Orchestral Suites No.s 2 and 3 (known for “Air on a G String”). Call 325-677-6710. Tickets $18-$42. Abilene Civic Center.

Jill Hendrix uses wood, textiles, and pigment in her two- and three-dimensional pieces that use a ladder as a central visual element, combining architectural formality with informal elements and colors. Her pieces convey our life-long struggle to ascend above the tendency to remain stationary, while encouraging the viewer to rise above life’s plight. A native Texan with a BFA from UT Tyler, she splits her time between her studio in Lindale in East Texas, and Austin. In Gallery 3, Center for Contemporary Arts, 220 Cypress Street, September 9 - October 25. Open Tuesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
