Duke Chapel Bach Cantata Series Concert #4

May 7, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Sunday, May 7 @ 5:00 pm
Bach Cantata Series: Solo Cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach with Molly Quinn, soprano and Mallarme Musicians directed by Dr. Philip Cave
Location: Duke Chapel

J.S. Bach’s church cantatas are often considered the pinnacle of German sacred music, works whose theological depth and emotional resonance touch deep places in the human soul. The Chapel’s Bach Cantata Series presents these musical masterpieces accompanied by other notable choral and instrumental works of the Baroque era. For this final concert in the series, we are delighted to welcome back Molly Quinn, presenting some of Bach’s loveliest cantatas for solo soprano and orchestra.

J.S. Bach:
BWV 209  Non sa che sia dolore
BWV 84  Ich bin vergnügt mit meinem Glücke
BWV 158 Der Friede sei mit dir
Telemann: Tafelmusik Suite in E Minor, I. Overture


Families with young children are invited to drop in during a rehearsal the day before the concert (May 6) between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. for a chance to hear the music close-up in an informal setting.

Paid parking is available on a first-come-first-served basis in the Bryan Center Garage at 125 Science Drive. ADA parking is available in the surface lot at the same address.
