This is a rare opportunity to hear Johan Sebastian Bach’s own legendary choir. Established in the year 1212 in Leipzig, the St. Thomas Choir is one of Europe’s greatest musical treasures. Bach led the choir at the St. Thomas Church for 27 years, and together they performed hundreds of his works. With members ranging in age from 10 to 18, the choir is dedicated to maintaining a rich tradition. The New York Times called a recent performance at New York’s Lincoln Center “exquisite” and said, “Surely this is what it must have been like to hear Bach lead the ensemble in one of his cantatas.”
Enjoy an informative pre-concert lecture 45 minutes prior to the performance. The lecture takes place in Ramsey Concert Hall in the Performing Arts Center.
