The Choral Arts of Philadelphia’s new concert season is here with many milestones to celebrate: it is turning 35, and their popular Bach@7 series has reached its first 5-year milestone! Their Bach At Seven programs (held every third Wednesday of the month) will feature a variety of emotion-stirring music from XVI-XXI centuries: from Michael Praetorius and Heinrich Schütz to Felix Mendelssohn, Hugo Distler, and our contemporaries, Philadelphians Kile Smith and David Carpenter.
Its season opening night concert is on Wednesday, September 20th. Their resident ensemble Philadelphia Bach Collegium will present its first chamber program of the year, “J.S. Bach: Mentors, Colleagues, and Students.” The program includes chamber music by Georg Böhm, Dietrich Buxtehude, Georg Philipp Telemann, Johann Ludwig Krebs, and J.S. Bach. Stay for the Q&A with the musicians after!
Date and time: 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 20, 2017
Location: S. Clement’s Church, 2013 Appletree Street, Philadelphia, 19103
