Washington Bach Consort presents “Easter & Ascension Oratorios”

May 5, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+0

J.S. Bach Easter Oratorio, BWV 249
Ascension Oratorio, BWV 11

The feasts of Easter and Ascension are significant events in the Christian calendar, celebrating the day when Jesus rose from the dead and the day that he entered heaven. J.S. Bach’s magnificent oratorios demonstrate his versatility, juxtaposing the full force of the orchestra and chorus in expressions of unbridled joy with more intimate music conveying Jesus’s sacrifice for humankind.

Katelyn G. Aungst, soprano
Sarah Davis Issaelkhoury, mezzo-soprano
Patrick Kilbride, tenor
Richard Giarusso, baritone
