Due to the challenges presented by the current coronavirus situa-tion, a concern for the safety of our chorale members, orchestra members and patrons, and in compliance with state and federal guidelines to date the Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the spring season of the Bach and Handel Chorale.
We appreciate your patronage and support, and we look for-ward to seeing you all soon.
From the Artistic Director and Conductor
Welcome to our 2019 – 2020 season of music presented to and for you.
Our Jim Thorpe, Ringtown and Trexlertown concerts are offered for your “getting in the Christmas Spirit” mood, as well as praising and thanking our God for the wonderful gift of his son. We hope that you will enjoy the many wonderful and heartwarming pieces of music chosen to celebrate the arrival and birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We have added a concert to our season this year in which we will experience the passion of Christ. On Palm Sunday evening we will present a Passion concert in which the pieces talk about the suffering and death of Jesus. Included will be “The Seven Last Words of Christ”, which I composed back in 1991. We hope that this concert will draw you closer to his suffering, crucifixion and death, so that we will all feel the full impact as we await his resurrection on Easter Day.
