One of the most famous pieces of classical music will be performed tomorrow (Saturday).
Bristol Bach Choir will sing in St George’s concert hall, Bristol, off Park Street, at 7.30pm on April 6.
The choir comprises 49 members and will perform Johann Sebastian Bach’s St John Passion.
Conducted by Christopher Finch, the group specialises in the music of Bach.
It is one of the South West’s finest choral groups and has gained a reputation for its dynamic, expressive singing and its vibrant performances.
Choir member, Andrea Argent, said: “This is going to be an outstanding performance of one of the top six major choral works ever written.
“We have a line-up of first class soloists and orchestra for this account of Christ’s final days on earth.
“The choir plays various roles in the story, from blood thirsty mob to pompous officials and soldiers drawing lots.”
