Continuing our season with a shout of joy and a moment of reflection, these two sacred cantatas by J. S. Bach highlight the dazzling voice and deeply moving musicianship of Portland-based soprano Arwen Myers. Directed by Kris Kwapis, this program will explore the rich emotional connections between voice and instruments with Cantata 51 for soprano, trumpet and strings and Cantata 199 for soprano, oboe and strings.
Pre-Concert Presentation – Orgelkids USA
Early Music Seattle is excited to present Orgelkids USA! Join us – and make sure to bring the whole family – 45 minutes before each of our concerts to build one of Bach’s favorite instruments! Orgelkids USA will have their incredible pipe organ kit that is design to empower children to build a playable pipe organ all on their own!
