From the Artistic Director and Conductor
Dear Friends and Patrons,
We are pleased to welcome you to the Bach and Handel Chorale’s thirty third year of bringing the music of Bach, Handel and other masters to the greater North-eastern Pennsylvania area and beyond. We promise to bring you interesting and engaging concerts during our 2016 – 2017 Season.
We will be performing our two Jim Thorpe Christmas Concerts at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Race Street, in Jim Thorpe, as well as two repeat concerts at other locations.
Our Passion/Easter Concert will be renamed “Spring Concert” and will see the chorale joined by the Festival Orchestra, performing some of Bach’s secular cantata choruses, and the opening and closing choruses of some great sacred Bach cantatas. We will also have music by Handel and some piano and orchestra works of modern composers. St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Race Street, in Jim Thorpe, will be the venue for this very moving performance. St. Mark’s, on the National Register of Historic Buildings, is always a wonderful place to make music.
