Have-A-Chat for Humanity was a YouTube-based open call to the community to participate in the Pittsburgh Humanities Festival. These Core Conversations were selected by a Festival panel.

Bennett explains that we know Bach mainly through his monumental organ pieces and large choral works. By examining his solo cello repertoire, we can become acquainted with a more personal side of Bach - a man struggling with the tragic loss of his beloved wife of 13 years, Maria Barbara. The presentation is a discussion of some of the personal details from Bach’s life that influenced his beautiful unaccompanied cello suites and a live performance of four movements.
