Performing "Bach to the Future"

With the Rockland String Quartet
Saturday, October 1st at 4:30 pm

Sing We Enchanted performs “Bach to the Future” with the Rockland String Quartet and harsichordist David Baranowski, as listed above. The hour-long concert includes a cappella arrangements, and a selection of vocal arrangements with string quartet and/or harpsichord or organ. The concert “prequel” includes musical gems by Thomas Morley and Johann Hermann Schein; pieces that might have been heard by J.S. Bach’s grandparents. The program then focuses on Bach chorales, and a number of choral selections from Bach cantatas, such as BWV 38, BWV 140, and BWV 147, including the well-known “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.” The concert also features selections by Bach’s contemporaries including Rameau, Domenico Scarlatti, Purcell, Handel, and Vivaldi. A concert “sequel” will present short works by composers who were influenced by Bach and/or influential in ensuring Bach’s place in history; including Mendelssohn, Weger, and several modern-day composers.

For the past twenty-two years, Sing We Enchanted (SWE) has performed in numerous venues across the tri-state area as an a cappella vocal ensemble. The ensemble is drawn to performing music of the Renaissance and Baroque, as well as American repertoire, and many varieties of holiday music.  Sing We Enchanted is committed to performing old and new a cappella musical gems that are typically not widely performed. SWE also performs for community causes; recently having participated in a COPD fundraiser; a healing concert in Newtown, CT; fundraising for Katrina, the Japan Earthquake; and multiple concerts for causes relating to 9/11.
