(March 10, 2021) —Cantemus Chamber Chorus is pleased to present “Bach Again: New Body, Old Soul,” over local access TV stations on Sunday, April 25, 2021 at 4 p.m. In this one-hour program, Jane Ring Frank, artistic director of Cantemus, in conversation with Newburyport Community Media Hub's Mary Jacobsen, will serve as your tour guide through the world of J. S. Bach’s chorales and their influence on his musical heirs.

In addition to highlighting select Bach chorales, Ms. Frank will provide context surrounding their creation, and follow these musical themes as they recur across the centuries, including in well-known songs of today.

“Bach Again: New Body, Old Soul” is made possible by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Local Cultural Councils listen below, and TV stations in those communities broadcasting the April 25th program.

“The date of this virtual program is significant,” said Frank. “In a normal springtime, we would have presented a traditional in-person concert of these works. Despite the pandemic-imposed limits on live performance, we are eager to continue connecting with lovers of choral music across the North Shore. We thank these local access TV stations and hope this experiment to leverage community TV to reach long-standing and new audience members will provide an ongoing appetite for future live concerts.”

Tune in to the Cantemus program on your local access TV station listed below on Sunday, April 25, at 4 p.m. The program will also be posted on the community TV station websites and the Cantemus website: For more information about Cantemus, visit our website or email
