Lectures series at Riford Library to explore the cantatas of J.S. Bach

Elisabeth Kotzakidou Pace will present the series, “Musical Narratives of Theological Complexity: Nine Lectures on the Cantatas of J. S. Bach,” at 2:30 p.m. on third Sundays, October-June, at the Riford Library, 7555 Draper Ave. Topics planned thus far include: “The Certainties of Faith” (Oct. 16), “The Mystical Wedding” (Nov. 20) and “Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh” (Dec. 18).

Wikipedia defines a cantata as a form of vocal chamber music most popular during the Baroque period. It was originally associated with the Lutheran service and has since been applied to other works for chorus and orchestra.

Pace earned a Ph.D. in music theory from Columbia University and a master’s in vocal performance from the Juilliard. She took training in cognitive science at Princeton and UCSD. She has taught both music and cognitive science-related topics at Washington University, Columbia University and UCSD.
