J.S. Bach and the Epic Cantata
Sunday, December 4, 2016
concert-clock 5:00 pm

This is not your typical Bach concert! The battle of good versus evil is waged in the epic Michaelmas cantatas – a series of four cantatas depicting a great battle in heaven. The program will also include Bach’s great Toccata and Fugue in D minor performed by Associate Music Director Renée Anne Louprette, hailed by The New York Times as “one of New York’s finest organists.”

Featuring the Musica Viva NY choir and Musica Viva NY soloists Joseph Beutel, Andrew Troup, Shabnam Abedi, Barbara Fusco, Nathan Siler, Andrew Moore, Shawn Bartels, Devony Smith and Chloë Schaaf.
