What is Emmanuel Music's Bach Cantata Series?
Why are Bach cantatas special?
How does Emmanuel Music prepare cantatas?
Join us as The Orchestra and Chorus of Emmanuel Music prepares Bach Cantata BWV 25, Es ist nichts Gesundes an meinem Leibe, conducted by Artistic Director Ryan Turner. The audience will hear the rehearsal for the following day's performance, and observe the techniques that enable Emmanuel Music to present the weekly Bach Cantata Series. Emmanuel Music has been performing Bach cantatas in a traditional liturgical setting since its late founder Craig Smith began the tradition in 1970. This is an opportunity to witness the Emmanuel Music ensemble from which many of Boston’s finest performers emerge.
After the rehearsal there will be an informal talk back with the musicians and a reception for all.
This program is part of ArtWeek Boston, a collection of curated events and experiences throughout the city that highlights the quality and diversity of arts, culture, and entertainment in Boston.
