Description

Professional chorus.

Emmanuel Music was formed in 1970 for the performance of J.S. Bach's sacred cantatas. Through our musicians' weekly cantata performances, we discovered that the works of Bach are the best training for a musician's technique and soul. Our text-driven interest in the overtly expressive nature of the music and our interest in projecting the meaning of the music, as well as the performance, became the dominant force shaping all musical activities at Emmanuel. The sheer number of performances of Bach, Mozart, Handel, Schütz, and others by our small core group of performers has made for our unusual unanimity of viewpoint and synergetic rapport, and created an "Emmanuel style" that is recognizable and unique among classical musicians. Today, Emmanuel Music seeks to enrich the cultural life of the Boston community through the presentation of concerts at the highest artistic standard that reflect a commitment to musical values, artistic and spiritual creativity, and social responsibility. In the spirit of cultivating a vibrant cultural community, we strive to explore music in new and innovative ways while providing talented emerging and established musicians a nurturing environment in which to perform and perfect their art.
