November 15, 2020. Bach Vespers Returns!
The 53rd Season of Bach Vespers premiers TONIGHT at 5:00 p.m. While this year's season is a virtual one, I have a hunch you'll be delighted what you'll see and hear this evening. Johann Sebastian Bach's Cantata No. 51 (Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen) is his only sacred cantata scored for solo soprano and trumpet, and we are so excited to welcome soprano Clara Rottsolk and trumpeter Perry Sutton as our featured soloists.
Last week, I recorded a short video with an introduction to the vespers part of Bach Vespers, and I encourage you to give it a watch. Whether you know the BWV catalog by heart or you've never really felt like Bach Vespers was your thing, trust me: there is a place for you here, and with this virtual season, that's as true as ever.
On behalf of Holy Trinity and all of our musicians, we are grateful for your commitment to this series in the past. Will you support this season with a gift that will help ensure these virtual vespers services will be a success? Your gift will also fund archive-quality recordings of these online vespers that will make Bach Vespers available to broader audiences. You can support Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity by going online to tinyurl.com/givebach.
You can also mail checks directly to:
Bach Vespers c/o Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 3 West 65 th Street New York, NY 10023
All donors will be recognized at the conclusion of each virtual service. With your help, we can support our fine musicians, remain faithful to our mission, and share the music of Johann Sebastian Bach beyond our walls. With our thanks and gratitude!
