Bach Christmas Oratorio
Sun, November 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST
Sounds of Stow Chorus & Orchestra with Barbara Jones, Artistic Director, is opening its 41st season with an encore performance of Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio” on November 24, 2pm, at the Hale School in Stow, MA.
Sounds of Stow will return to its acclaimed 2014 version of the Christmas Oratorio, which relates the story of the nativity in six cantatas, using texts drawn from various Biblical sources. Through an ever-engaging series of choruses, chorales, solo arias, intimate instrumental interludes and narrated recitatives, the familiar story comes to life in a way that has universal appeal for people of all religious outlooks.
The concert will feature a full orchestra and outstanding professional soloists: Jessica Cooper, soprano; Deborah Rentz-Moore, mezzo; Jason Wang, tenor; James Dargan, baritone; Kyle Spraker, trumpet; and Margot Law, narrator.
