Blanche Moyse Chorale: JS Bach – Four Cantatas

October 5, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

In the tradition of the New England Bach Festival, the Brattleboro Music Center’s Blanche Moyse Chorale will present four Cantatas of J.S. Bach in two performances, Friday, Oct 5, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 7, at 2:30 p.m.

Both concerts will take place at the BMC, 72 Blanche Moyse Way in Brattleboro.

The program will include Bach’s BWV 4, Christ lag in Todesbanden, BWV 14, Wär Gott nicht mit uns diese Zeit, BWV 20, O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort, and BWV 60, O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort. The concert will feature vocal and instrumental soloists familiar to the Chorale’s audience.

The Chorale was founded in 1978 by Blanche Moyse as a chamber choir which focused primarily on the Church Cantatas and other choral works of J.S. Bach, and was showcased in the annual New England Bach Festival, as well as in other concert settings.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mary Westbrook-Geha, the Chorale moves forward with the skills, passion, and musicality inspired by Mme. Moyse.  Expanding on its beloved Bach background, the Chorale now explores an ever-widening range of repertoire with a fresh commitment to the highest level of choral excellence, precision and beauty of tone.
