A Rare Presentation of 18-Cantata Cycle from Bach’s Most Creative Year
February 1 through April 26, 2017
PHILADELPHIA, FEBRUARY 1-APRIL 26, 2017: Choral Arts Philadelphia, a premier chamber choir led by Artistic Director Matthew Glandorf, presents the Winter (Epiphany Season) and Spring (Eastertide & Ascension) segments of the 1734-1735: A Season In The Life of J.S. Bach series which was launched in October of 2016. The 2017 portion of the extraordinary series, in partnership with the Philadelphia Bach Collegium, includes five programs each offering two Bach cantatas composed and/or performed during that liturgical season. The cantatas bookmark brief insightful talks given by guest scholar speakers. A distinctive variation on Choral Arts’ popular series Bach at Seven, the five Winter/Spring programs are presented on Wednesdays, 7-8 pm, at S. Clement’s Church (2013 Appletree Street, Philadelphia) with pay-what-you-wish admission and a post-concert reception.
