Welcome, the Song Company! Our cherished Bach concert tradition is the perfect opportunity to showcase this ensemble and feature one of the master’s greatest a cappella motets, Jesu meine Freude. The concert opens with Bach’s scintillating E major Prelude for solo violin and then Ysaye’s celebrated treatment of it! Another selection of great arias, the uplifting G minor Gamba Sonata, and as a culmination, we hear one of the most beloved of all Bach’s cantatas, Ich Habe Genug, featuring the Song Company’s stunning bass singer, Alex Knight.
