Date: February 20, 2014
Location: California, USA
The SF Bach Choir salutes its namesake with a concert of thrilling choral movements from a variety of Bach’s cantatas, including Christ Lag in Todesbanden and Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan. The jubilant and heartening double choir motet, Fürchte dich nicht, ich bin bei dir, crowns the program, a celebration of the SF Bach Choir’s most beloved repertoire and a special farewell to Artistic Director Corey Jamason. Mr. Jamason will also play the organ in the Sinfonia from Gott soll allein mein Herze haben, accompanied by the SFBC Baroque Orchestra. A reception in his honor will follow the Sunday performance. Free pre-concert lecture 3 PM Sunday.
