“My soul magnifies the Lord!” cries the Virgin to the angel — which Bach’s pen echoes in his Magnificat in D Major. Join us in this special Bach Vespers with the full Bach Choir and Orchestra for works celebrating the Christmas story. Johann Sebastian’s composition on this magnificent text includes brilliant trumpet fanfares, plaintive melodies for oboe d’amore, and jubilant flourishes for strings, resulting in a tremendous musical proclamation to usher in the Advent and Christmas seasons.
Pre-vespers talk 5:15 P.M. with Mario Aschauer. Bach Vespers is presented without charge. An offering will be accepted.
