Johann Sebastian Bach wrote some of his most famous works while serving as Director of Music at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, Germany. Surprisingly, he was third choice for the job. Upon the death of Johan Kuhnau, the position was offered first to Georg Philipp Telemann, who used the offer as leverage to get a raise from his employer. It was then offered to Christoph Graupner, but his employer refused to release him from his contract. Only then was the position offered to Bach, who accepted. Was he a better composer than Kuhnau, Graupner or Telemann? You decide: This concert will feature works by all four Baroque masters. In this wonderful program, the Master Chorale will be accompanied by The Symphonia of Boca Raton and soprano Yulia Van Doren, countertenor Reginald L. Mobley and tenor Steven Soph.
