Bach St. Matthew Passion
Mar 27 + 29, 2015

“There is nothing like it in all music,” said Leonard Bernstein, describing this monumental oratorio. H+H reprises its sold-out 2012 performances of the Saint Matthew Passion with an exemplary cast of soloists, including Joshua Ellicott and Roderick Williams as the Evangelist and Jesus, respectively. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind masterwork, to be performed during the final days of Lent.
