OPEN CANTATA REHEARSAL BWV 43
May 7, 2016 at 11:30 am–1:30 pm
What is a cantata? Why did Bach write cantatas? Why does Emmanuel Music present weekly Bach cantatas? Join us as The Orchestra and Chorus of Emmanuel Music prepares Bach Cantata BWV 43, Gott fähret auf mit Jauchzen, conducted by Artistic Director Ryan Turner. The audience will listen to the work in progress, and will learn about the history, function, and structure of Bach Cantatas and their significance to Emmanuel Music. 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. Following the rehearsal, around 12:45 PM, there will be an open discussion with opportunity for questions. Participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch. Admission is free, but reservations are requested.
