The Festival Chorus sings a stirring Bach cantata and Handel’s festive Chandos Anthem #9, accompanied by the Sebastians period-instrument Baroque ensemble. The Chorus has a long tradition of presenting some of the most intricate and expressive music of the Baroque period, and this concert, in the vaulted space of Trinity Episcopal Church, is sure to please its admirers. Festival Director Gregory Jon Geehern conducts.
Take in the 6pm pre-performance talk in the church's Pierce-Bishop Hall. Free and open to the public.
