The season opens with a celebration of the musical and cultural friendship between Houston's Sister City, Leipzig, Germany, where Bach spent much of his life. At the center are Bach's stunning Leipzig Cantata Keep Jesus Christ in Mind, and a festive motet written during Bach's lifetime in the New World — Laudate dominum by Mexican baroque composer Manuel de Sumaya. As a special guest, Pastor Britta Tadikken of St. Thomas Church in Leipzig will offer a brief reflection during the Vespers.
