What is the “Cantata Insights Series?”


Colorado Bach Ensemble’s “Cantata Insights Series” gives audiences an opportunity to learn more about Bach’s many cantatas. In these popular and educational concerts, Artistic Director James Kim has a special way of explaining what he knows, drawing you into the wonders of Bach’s music. After James gives his insights on a “guided tour” through one of the cantatas, the ensemble performs the work in its entirety, giving the audience a fresh perspective of one of Bach’s magnificent works.

There are four opportunities to experience these entertaining and informative performances this season!
