Bach's St. Matthew Passion Concert Weekend

Johann Sebastian Bach
Sunday, February 21, 2010 at 4 pm

Profoundly religious yet intimate in its expression of
human feeling, the  St. Matthew Passion tells of the days
leading to the Crucifixion as the music arcs from the exultant
to the tragic, sweeping the listener into the drama.

Craig Phillips, bass-baritone
