Long Beach Bach Festival with the Horizon Chamber Choir
Saturday, February 15, 2014 from 3:00 PM to 4:15 PM (PST)
Long Beach, CA
The Horizon Chamber Choir has been invited back to the Long Beach Bach Festival!
The ensemble led by conductor Christian Campos presents My Heart's Pasture, a program featuring music by Monteverdi, Purcell, and J.S. Bach. The centerpiece of the concert is Bach's five-voice funereal motet Jesu, meine Freude. The longest of Bach's motets, the eleven-movement work is laid out symmetrically with chorale movements interpolated between biblical texts from Romans.
If you are unable to see this show, please join for for our concert in Hollywood on Sunday, February 16th at Blessed Sacrament Church featuring the same program.
