2022 Concert Series
From the Artistic Director:
The COLLEGIUM VOCALE OF ST. LOUIS hopes you will join us as we proudly present ”Come Let Us Worship the Lord: Four Sacred Cantatas by Christoph Graupner,” on Sunday, May 29, 2022 at 3:00 p.m.. The concert will be presented at Bethel Lutheran Church, 7001 Forsyth, Clayton, 63105.
Cristoph Graupner 9 (1683-1760) was a significant contemporary of J. S. Bach, and G. Ph. Telemann. While his music fell into neglect for the 19th and 20th centuries, his music is now undergoing rediscovery. His is a striking and unique musical voice. The Collegium Vocale of St. Louis has been at the forefront of this rediscovery. This is a unique opportunity to join us for this exciting presentation of these remarkable pieces. The Collegium Vocale of St. Louis will be accompanied by an ensemble of local wind and string players who specialize in playing music of this period.
Whether you are very familiar with this style and period of music or newly curious, we know you will enjoy the experience of hearing this intriguing and expressive music if you join us for this concert, A live concert is the very best way to enjoy the delights of this music.
The singers and instrumentalists of CVSL are very excited to return to live performances before equally excited audiences. We hope that you will plan to join us for these fascinating journeys of musical discovery.
