Bach and Beyond (Part II)

The innovative professional ensemble of vocal artists concludes its third season with the second of two concerts combining cantatas of J.S. Bach with music by contemporary composers. The goal of Bach and Beyond is to make a relevant connection between the cantatas of Bach and today’s world by juxtaposing the works with new music by living composers.

This concert pairs Bach’s cantata BWV 78 (Jesu, der du Meine Seele) with a new work composed for Areté by New Mexico composer Bradley Ellingboe (I Love To Tell The Story). Also featured will be the music of composer David Lang, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize (oh graveyard, I lie, and evening moring day).

Admission is $20, $15 for seniors, $10 for students with I.D. and free for children under 12. Tickets are available at the door or online.
