St. Matthew Passion, by Johann Sebastian Bach
Why is this work considered one of the greatest in the choral canon? How can we relate to it today as a dramatic exploration of the human condition that can speak to all of humanity? How can the average person listen for the most meaningful experience? What are the issues of anti-Semitism in passion texts that need to be faced in today's world?
Join us as clinician Mark A. Boyle, director of choral and vocal activities at Seton Hall University, shares his passion for the Passion with Artistic Director Anne Matlack, alto soloist Patricia Ruggles, and cantor Anna Ott.
