I am pleased to announce that the Thanet Festival Choir, The Seventy Choir of Thanet with the Festival Chamber Orchestra are mounting a performance of JS Bach's monumental St Matthew Passion on Saturday 16th April 2011 beginning at 7pm in Holy Trinity Church, Broadstairs, Kent, England.

This performance of the St Matthew Passion marks the first in the Kentish Isle of Thanet since the early 1960's and will be sung in German.
