Bach Akademie Charlotte opens the 2018|19 Season with an evening exploring J.S. Bach's influence on the choral motet tradition through "Jesu, meine Freude" (BWV 227) and works by Mendelssohn, Schütz, and Brahms.
BACH: Darzu ist erschienen der Sohn Gottes, BWV 40

Throughout the year, Bach Akademie Charlotte performs various choral works of J.S. Bach and his contemporaries in informative, period performances. Combining the use of live excerpts, lecture notes, and thoughtful performance, the Cantata Series will inspire and educate audiences to reach a further understanding of what makes Bach’s music unique in classical music repertoire.
