Learn & Engage

Emmanuel Music is your place to discover and take a deep dive into some of the most transcendent and enduring music ever written. Whether you’re a first-time listener, a musician, or a scholar, Emmanuel Music offers meaningful opportunities to engage with the works of Bach and composers he inspired.

Ways to Engage

If you're new to cantatas, start here.

Emmanuel Music would not exist without our community of musicians, audiences, staff, supporters, and volunteers—it truly takes a village to make this incredible music happen.
