Event description

Description

CONCORA has long been renowned for its masterful and moving performances of choral music by Johann Sebastian Bach. In 2018, the ensemble presents the monumental Saint Matthew Passion, one of two surviving settings by Bach of the Easter Passion story. During his lifetime, Bach conducted the Saint Matthew Passion in Holy Week services several times, and it was presented by his Leipzig successor a few more times. But it was only with Mendelssohn’s revival of the work in 1829 that this music burst into the larger world, and it has remained a foundational masterpiece ever since.

Calling for three choirs, soloists, and orchestra, the Saint Matthew Passion offers some of Bach’s grandest music, while exploring in the most intimate terms the very nature of faith and redemption.

The Worcester Telegram called CONCORA’s 2017 presentation of Bach cantatas “Stunning... intoxicating... enthralling... beguiling... soaring.” Reserve your seats soon for this special event.
