Kathleen Romey, conductor; Cantor David Cherwien, organist
The Bach Tage Orchestra and Chorus

Mount Olive Music and Fine Arts presents two public events in association with its Seventeenth Annual “Bach Tage,” or “Bach day.” Every year during a two-day convocation, singers (and listeners) from anywhere and of any age gather to explore, rehearse, hear, and learn about the music of Lutheranism’s greatest composer, Johann Sebastian Bach. This year, participants will prepare Bach’s Cantata BWV 101, Nimm von uns, Herr, der treuer Gott, built on the hymn tune VATER UNSER (Our Father), and a setting of the Lord’s Prayer by Heinrich Schütz, both of which will be incorporated into the service of Evening Prayer on Sunday, June 2. The cantatas will be performed by the participants in the weekend conference, with soloists and orchestra.

Kathy Romey returns to conduct Bach Tage for a seventeenth year in 2024. Kathy is Director of Choral Activities at the University of Minnesota and artistic director of the Minnesota Chorale, the principal chorus of the Minnesota Orchestra. She has been a chorus master to the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart. The musicians of the Bach-Tage orchestra are all specialists in the performance of baroque music and perform on period instruments or replicas of them.

The event takes place at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 3045 Chicago Avenue South, Minneapolis. A reception in the Chapel Lounge follows Evening Prayer. The event is free and open to the public.

This is the seventh events in the 2023-2024 Mount Olive Music and Fine Arts season. For further information on this event and on the Music and Fine Arts program, please contact Dr. Cherwien at the church office at 612-827-5919 or on-line at www.mountolivechurch.org .
