Bach's Matthew Passion

  • St. Mary Queen of Angels Catholic Church 415 South Windsor Street Russell, KS, 67665 United States (map)

The season ends with a performance of J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion. One of the most influential works in all of music, our performance of Bach's masterpiece will take audiences immersively through modern stations of the cross. The Russell Community Choir will sing parts of the work in a modern English translation commissioned for this performance, while our visiting artists will perform the bulk of the piece in a style close to what would've been heard in Bach's time. The visiting artists are brought to Russell in part from a grant from the Russell County Area Community Foundation.
