Early Music Vancouver Bach Festival

Tickets are going quickly for this memorable concert — part of the 2017 Vancouver Bach Festival, which runs from August 1 to 11 at the Chan Centre at UBC. During Bach’s lifetime the St. John Passion was performed at least four times. The inaugural performance on this continent was not until 1888, a full 164 years after its first performance. This stirring work has now become part of the classical music canon, and EMV is proud to close its two-week 15-c0ncert festival with its own unique performance of this timeless telling of the Passion story, performed by the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, the Vancouver Cantata Singers and a wonderful cast of international Bach specialists from the Swiss ensemble Gli Angeli, led by Alexander Weimann.
