Banbury Choral Society’s concert

Banbury Choral Society’s concert

ST JOHN PASSION SATURDAY 4 APRIL 7.30pm St. Mary's Church, Banbury.

Banbury Choral Society will give a concert of JS Bach's masterpiece St John Passion on Saturday 4 April at 7.30pm. They will be accompanied by the well-known chamber orchestra, the Oxford Sinfonia, six young bright soloists, all under the baton of their inspiring conductor, Julian Harris.

Bach St John Passion is intensely dramatic with an overriding message of compassion, hope and ultimate salvation, and is one of the most demanding, and rewarding, works for a choir to perform. This oratorio was first performed on Good Friday in Leipzig in April 1724.

Banbury Choral Society goes from strength to strength and attracts members from Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. Founded in 1942 the choir has staged numerous concerts in Banbury and North Oxfordshire.

Tickets for St John Passion: £15 (£5 under 16s) from http://www.banburychoralsoc.co.uk
