"There is nothing like it in all of music"

Said Leonard Bernstein of Bach's St. Matthew Passion, one of the most gripping, moving, and ambitious musical works of all time. Now, experience this setting of the events leading up to Christ’s crucifixion in one of the greatest pieces of music in the Western repertory.

This concert is made possible in part by Houston Saengerbund, the Houston Endowment and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
