CONCERT: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

Experience the greatest musical Christmas story of all time
“Shout for joy!” exclaims the choir, joined by timpani, trumpets, and the rest of the ensemble in the opening chorus of J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. Welcome the season with the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers and the Bach Society of Minnesota as we perform one of the greatest musical Christmas stories of all time. Nearly 300 years after its creation, Bach’s narrative recitatives, beautiful arias, solemn chorales, and magnificent choral writing prove more popular than ever. Join us on this vivid musical journey through the mystery of the nativity in the beautiful Basilica of Saint Mary led by Philip Brunelle and Matthias Maute, conductor of the Bach Society of Minnesota.
