    Music of the Baroque – Easter Oratorio

    Sun, April 10 @ 7:30 pm

    $48 – $95

    Music of the Baroque presents
    Easter Oratorio

    Dame Jane Glover leads the Music of the Baroque Chorus, Orchestra, and four world renowned soloists—Yulia Van Doren, Elizabeth DeShong, James Gilchrist, and Michael Sumuel—in Bach’s imaginative Easter Oratorio, a journey from a cavern’s darkness into the magnificent light of heaven. Gilchrist takes a solo turn in Purcell’s “Evening Song” and Buxtehude’s Quemamodum desiderat cervus. The motet “Komm, Jesu, komm” and the thrilling Sinfonia in D Major—possibly a fragment of a lost violin concerto—complete the program.
