Happenings, history and news of the Prospect Park Neighborhood and Ypsilanti

Event this week

Posted by ppna on March 13, 2008

NOTE THAT THESE ARE TWO INDEPENDENT YET RELATED EVENTS:
LECTURE AND PERFORMANCE OF J.S. BACH’S PASSION ACCORDING TO ST. MATTHEW
 
This music by J.S. Bach is by many considered to be the culmination of his life’s work. 
It is rarely performed in the U.S. as it is sung in German and requires a sizable orchestra and a double-choir in addition to several soloists.
 
If you are not familiar with this music this is a unique chance to experience a world-class professional performance at a reasonable price!
You don’t need to understand the language, to grasp the mood and the magnitude of this music. 
Composed in the 18th Century, this music captures the essence of the flamboyant Baroque style.
Bach specifically composed this piece for Good Friday.
It is a deeply moving experience for any spiritual person of any faith.
