The Belgian baroque ensemble Vox Luminis has soared to international acclaim since its founding in 2004, garnering two Gramophone awards—Recording of the Year (2012) and Best Choral Album (2019)—among countless others. In its Chicago debut, the ensemble of singers and continuo musicians brings its unique sound to Johann Sebastian Bach’s early cantatas, those written between 1707 and 1708 as the composer began to develop this seminal form in Mühlhausen, Germany.

This concert is supported by the Wilhelm von Humboldt Performance Fund.
