Bach St. Matthew Passion
February 23, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25 – $40
One of the most ambitious musical compositions of all time by the greatest musical genius of all time! J.S. Bach demonstrates his strength as a dramatic composer in this musical interpretation of Christ’s final sufferings.
Gathering the powerful forces of ten soloists, multiple choirs and two orchestras, Bach tells the story through text from the Book of Matthew, German poetry, and chorales.
The Passion begins with an immense wave of sound – an opening chorus by double choir with children’s chorus soaring over the top – building with intensity, and sweeping the listener into the drama. Each solo voice, choir and orchestra plays a role. Described as a “majestic cathedral of music,” this work is at once intimate and monumental.
A work so devastating in its power that people of all beliefs find meaning in it – Experience for yourself why this work has held its emotional impact from 1727 to today!
