In just four short years at the helm of Emmanuel Music, Artistic Director Ryan Turner has taken the professional orchestra and chorus (both featuring some of the country’s most in-demand soloists) to new heights. From the standing-room-only performances of their Boston premiere of The Great Gatsby at Jordan Hall and the Tanglewood Music Festival in Lenox, Massachusetts, to the critically acclaimed performances of Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, Emmanuel Music under the direction of Mr. Turner continues to traverse new ground while firmly keeping Bach as their core companion, proving themselves, once again, to be one of Boston’s most cherished and enduring ensembles.
