Concert seasons may wax and wane, but one thing that classical music lovers can count on is the TGIF series at First Presbyterian Church. Every Friday all the year round, the establishment opens its doors (at 208 Grant Ave.) to listeners for a short concert at an hour when the work week cedes to the weekend. On Friday, Sept. 6, from 5:30 to 6 p.m., the music is in the hands of Jan Worden-Lackey, who received her master’s degree as a harps- chordist at Southern Methodist University and carved out a niche performing early music in Dallas before establishing herself as a busy keyboard player in Santa Fe. Her recital encompasses short harpsichord works from the 16th through 18th centuries, including depictive items by William Byrd and Louis-Claude Daquin plus a musette en rondeau by Jean-Philippe Rameau. She concludes with two famous masterworks by composers renowned for their abilities when negotiating the possibilities of the harpsichord: the Prelude and Fugue in G Minor from Book Two of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier and the grand Passacaille from Handel’s G-Minor Harpsichord Suite. There is no charge for the concert; donations are appreciated. Call 982-8544, Ext. 16.
