Bach Cantata Series: UMD Choral Activities
Join us in person at The Clarice or watch the livestream from the comfort of your home.
J.S. Bach, known as the great master, wrote more than 200 cantatas, and UMD Choral Activities aims to sing them all in this series of short performances led by conductors in the graduate program. Conducted by a graduate student from the choral conducting program, this performance will feature a Bach Cantata that will be announced closer to the concert.
