J. S.Bach: Easter Oratorio

With this concert, the Bach Society begins a series of performances of all Bach’s oratorios with the magnificent Easter Oratorio. The inventive use of instrumental and vocal colors makes this oratorio a miracle of music, in which three trumpets and timpani set the tone in a fascinating musical exploration of the Easter events.

In addition to the choir and orchestra, the Bach Society is pleased to share the stage with Partners in Praise Girls Choir under the direction of Julia Fahey. Bringing warmth and energy to the stage with works by Monteverdi, Rutter, Michael Culleton and others, and joining voices with the audience in a closing piece, this concert will be a joyous event that sets Bach’s jewel in a setting of ebullient choral music.

Bach Society extends a special invitation to audience members who would like to sing along with the final piece to attend a pre-concert rehearsal and receive a discounted ticket for $10.
