TICKETS AND CONCERT INFORMATION

Friday | Nov 2 | 8:00pm 

Cathedral of Saint Paul, Saint Paul

 

Bach: Saint John Passion

Jonathan Cohen, conductor

Artistic Partner and early music expert Jonathan Cohen leads the SPCO in one of Bach’s seminal works — his Saint John Passion. This oratorio was written for Good Friday in 1724, using the German translation of the Gospel of Saint John. Joined by a stellar cast of vocal soloists with chorales sung by The Singers, these performances in the Cathedral of Saint Paul and the acoustically exquisite Ordway Concert Hall are certain to be highlights of the 2018.19 season.

 

THANK YOU from SPCO!

The SPCO extends its warmest thanks to these generous donors for making these performances and video capture of Bach’s Saint John Passion possible.

  • Guided spotlight presentation by

Fr. Ubel
