Welcome to the 2013-2014 Season!
Our 2013-2014 season is one of contrasts, running the gamut from the sweet solitude of the Goldberg Variations to Bach’s most lavish work, the Mass in B Minor. At Bach Vespers we bring you the exquisite cantatas for solo voice, and lesser-known 17th-century gems sung by an ensemble of soloists from the Bach Choir—the first time we have been able to offer this repertoire in authentic performance practice. In contrast, the Abendmusik Concerts feature two large-scale concerts, one with major works by Bach’s sons, and another of wide-ranging and emotional choral works for Passiontide sung by an expanded Bach Choir.
We are also thrilled to bring you the rare opportunity to hear the St. Thomas Boys Choir of Leipzig, Bach’s own choir, in two separate programs at Stude Hall. This is sure to be the high point of a season filled with superlative performances. We hope you will join us often—not only at our home at Christ the King Lutheran Church, but at Zilkha Hall and the Cullen Theater. Be sure to visit our website to find much more information on the music and the artists of this exciting new season.
