The Chicago Bach Ensemble ("CBE") was formed in January 2012.  Since then it has performed four cycles of J.S. Bach's cantatas on modern instruments. In September 2013, CBE became the recipient of a Three-Year Grant by The Mac Arthur Fund for Arts and Culture at The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.

This grant allowed us to review our hiring policies and we are now happy to establish ourselves as a fully professional group on the Chicago art scene.

At this time, CBE is embarking on new and exciting territory: the ensemble will turn to baroque instruments, baroque interpretation, an organist who performs from the original numbered bass in the conductor's score, and performance with baroque tuning at 415hz.  We will use typical period ensemble size for voice and instruments. Baroque music is a style of Western classical music that was popular between 1600-1750.  J.S. Bach's music presents the high point of German Baroque Music at the end of the Baroque period as he was born in 1685 and died in 1750.

The audience will have the chance to hear Bach's cantatas in Chicago area churches as close to an original Bach performance as we can imagine it.  This unique and outstanding experience is made possible by Maestro Ruben Dubrovsky, a baroque specialist conductor, who will lead our ensemble and conduct Cycle 5 in three different area churches on November 6th, 7th and 8th.

We are so happy to be able to welcome Ruben Dubrovsky in Chicago and to present beautiful music under his baton and his expertise.  Please join us in these events.

The Chicago Bach Ensemble, led by conductor James Setapen, is a group of approximately forty musicians consisting of an orchestra, a vocal ensemble and organist. The ensemble, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization,  was formed with the idea of presenting the sacred music of J.S. Bach in the space it was originally intended for --- a church  and to the people it was originally intended for  the community of that church. The composer faced many hardships during his life but always remained true to his desire for the ultimate light. His cantatas carry the expression of this desire. Please come and listen and be elevated.
