A Bach Christmas
Dec 19 + 22, 2013

Blue Heron director Scott Metcalfe makes his H+H debut in this festive program centered around Bach’s Cantata 62, composed for the first Sunday of Advent. H+H’s fine chorus is also featured in music from the 17th-century German tradition, one of Metcalfe’s specialties.
