About Emmanuel Music
Emmanuel Music, a collective group of singers and instrumentalists, was founded in 1970 by Craig Smith to perform the complete cycle of over 200 sacred cantatas of J. S. Bach in the liturgical setting for which they were intended, an endeavor twice completed and a tradition which continues under the leadership of Ryan Turner, Artistic Director. Over the years, Emmanuel Music has garnered critical and popular acclaim through its presentations of large-scale and operatic works by Bach, Handel, Schubert, and Mozart, its in-depth exploration of the complete vocal, piano, and chamber works of Debussy, Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, and others, and its presentation of contemporary music, especially the work of composer John Harbison. The organization shares its artistic and educational resources with the community through its Community Connections program, The Bach Institute, and the Lindsey Chapel Series.
