Choral Society of Durham’s Chamber Choir and The Mallarmé Chamber Players present a joint concert:

Historical Bach

Sunday, February 7 at 3:00 pm

First Presbyterian Church, 305 E. Main Street, Durham

The music of Johann Sebastian Bach performed as it might have been heard by Bach himself. Mallarmé and the Choral Society of Durham team up to present a concert of three Cantatas and the 2nd Orchestral Suite, performed with historically informed performance practices. This is an approach where musicians play on period instruments, utilizing historical treatises and evidence to gain insight into the stylistic and technical aspects of the way a work might have been performed at the time it was composed. Baroque players from all over North Carolina and beyond will participate in the concert.

This concert is co-sponsored by TEMPO
