Cantata Collective
San Francisco Bay Area’s only professional Ensemble dedicated solely to the performance of the Cantatas of J.S. Bach proudly invites you to their next concert, featuring “dialogue cantatas” Selig ist der Manns BWV 57 and Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid BWV 58, with vocal soloists Sherezade Panthaki, soprano, and Paul Max Tipton, baritone; and instrumentalists Marc Schachman and Michael Dupree, oboes; Kati Kyme and Lisa Weiss, violins; Anthony Martin, viola; William Skeen, cello; Kristin Zoernig, bass; and Charles Sherman, organ. In the dialogue cantatas, with the soprano representing the Soul, and the bass representing Jesus, Bach gives us some of his most dramatic and ultimately passionate writing. Cantata Collective aims to present the Bach cantatas free to the public, as the equivalent of a World Heritage Site, a collection of masterworks belonging to all people. Bach’s greatest body of work will be heard as vocal chamber music featuring local and internationally recognized artists. Further performances will take place in February, March, and April. Although admission to the concerts is free, membership in the Collective will be offered so that listeners and performers may join together to make this music available to all.
