Collegium Cincinnati is excited to announce the launch of a new, multi-year project to bring the fun and fulfillment of Bach's Cantatas to performers and audiences of all ages.
On February 6, three local choirs (Cincinnati Boychoir, Xavier University Concert Choir, Christ Church Cathedral Choir) will join Collegium Cincinnati for a 'round robin' of Bach's Cantatas. Each cantata will be performed by a different ensemble with a different conductor.
Bach's cantatas are among the most important, meaningful, and beautiful works written in the classical music genre. The chance to perform them with the excellent musicians of the Collegium is an experience that we hope will be fun for all!
The CantataFest performance kicks off at 4:00 pm on Saturday, February 6, and is one of the many events featured as a part of Cincinnati's Early Music Month.
