Event Details:

Featuring:
John Rutter's Requiem
and
J.S. Bach's “Christ lag in Todesbanden” (Cantata 4)

Death, the underworld, and lamentation versus resurrection, heaven, and rejoicing—humans have long imagined the contrast of these ideas as the difference between darkness and light. In our Classics Concert we’ll feature two extraordinary compositions that express our hope for light: J.S. Bach’s Easter cantata “Christ lag in Todesbanden” (Christ lay in death’s bonds) and John Rutter’s Requiem. The cantata carries the listener from the darkness of the tomb to the bright hallelujahs of resurrection, and the Requiem eloquently expresses both a painful lament for the brevity of life, and a serenely confident prayer for hope and light eternal.

Tickets: Adult - $25/$20, Student - $12
