The 2017–18 season concludes with Bach Vespers celebrating Eastertide. Bach’s fantastic Easter cantata Bringet dem Herrn Ehre seines Namens is a tour de force, complete with tremendous choral-orchestral fugues, a striking sinfonia, and gorgeous arias, all performed by the Bach Choir and Bach Orchestra, with strings, three oboes, and baroque trumpet.
