Charlotte Bach Festival 2019 Finale: St. Matthew Passion

Classical, Choral

The final concert of the 2019 Charlotte Bach Festival features one of Bach’s most profound artistic contributions—considered by many to be one of the crowning achievements of sacred music —the legendary St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244. Bach calls for not one but two choirs and orchestras in his masterfully crafted musical depiction of chapters 26 and 27 of the Gospel of Matthew. Vocal Fellows join the BA|Charlotte Cantata Choir and the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra under the direction of Scott Allen Jarrett, featuring Steven Soph as the Evangelist.
