Emmanuel Church, Boston
For Boston Bach Birthday 332!
Join us in celebration of Bach's birthday for a behind the scenes look as The Orchestra and Chorus of Emmanuel Music, prepares Bach Cantata BWV 54, Widerstehe doch der Sünde, 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 a tradition that continues to this day.
After the rehearsal, there will be an informal talkback.
