This will be Austin’s first period-instrument performance of the St. John Passion in a number of years and is not to be missed! Bach composed the Johannespassion for Good Friday services in Leipzig in 1724, and its brilliance and depth remains a testament to his genius. Though smaller in scale than the St. Matthew Passion, the St. John Passion is packed with dramatic power and visceral emotion. Join us in Austin at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 18th, or in Fredericksburg at St. Mary's Catholic Church on March 19th.
