Bach's St. Matthew Passion: Palm Sunday, March 25
Our resident choral ensembles, the Saint Andrew Chorale and New York City Children’s Chorus, have been busy preparing this masterwork of the sacred choral literature! This Sunday, March 25 at 3 pm, the Chorale will be joined by the professional Saint Andrew Orchestra and soloists in a performance of Bach’s monumental St. Matthew Passion. The account of Christ’s passion and death from Matthew’s gospel is presented through dramatically conceived recitatives and choruses, with moments of lyrical and poignant reflection in the solo arias and chorales. Tickets and will call reservations can be made in advance before 12 noon on Sunday, or may be purchased at the door.
