Emmanuel Music engages with audiences and musicians to explore the enduring questions of our shared human experience, building on our core commitment to the music of J.S. Bach.
Emmanuel Music opens its 53rd season with a program devoted to the theme of unity and neighborly love.In Reena Esmail’s “This Love Between Us”, Eastern and Western musical traditions collide in an exploration of the seven Indian religious traditions, looking for common ground in a spiritual journey towards unity, harmony, and kindness.
Setting the theme of the evening will be a new cantata, O große Lieb, assembled from various Bach cantatas by Artistic Director Ryan Turner and Director of the Bach Institute Pamela Dellal.
Welcome to Emmanuel Music’s 53rd season! Inside you will find the details of three major concerts, including a performance of living composer Reena Esmail’s This Love Between Us and the J.S. Bach Christmas Oratorio; the Bach Institute Intensive returns to its traditional January slot, and our Lindsey Chapel Series will return this year from February 23 through March 30 of 2023.View Brochure
