We are so excited to announce our 2020–21 virtual concert season! We have a line-up of performances from the Sebastians archives, plus some special brand-new recordings still in progress, and we are thrilled to share these vibrant recordings with you. We have so many wonderful memories of our past concerts — so many moments of the electric excitement that come from sharing emotional experiences with you, our beloved audience. We all look forward to coming together in community, but until that is possible, we hope to brighten your day with these videos.
It is a difficult time for so many, including artists, and we’re so very grateful that with your generous support, we are doing what we can to keep our musical community afloat. Our virtual season will be free to all, so that everyone can enjoy these recordings, and we ask that you consider donating if you can.
We look forward to returning to the concert hall, but for now, we hope these videos brighten your day.
Our first selection is Bach’s joyous Cantata 51, “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen” (Shout for joy to God in all lands), featuring the radiant Katharine Dain and magnificent Steven Marquardt. In these troubled times we think “joy” is something we could all use.
