Cantata Series

Throughout the year, Bach Akademie Charlotte performs various choral works of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries in historically informed performances. The Cantata Series inspires audiences to reach a further understanding of what makes Bach’s music unique in the classical repertoire, while delivering an emotional impact that is surprisingly relevant.
