Bach Akademie Australia | Weihnachtsfreude ***SOLD OUT***

13 November 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEDT

This concert has sold out!

Join us for a program of Christmas Joy in the beautiful surrounds of Christ Church St Laurence to celebrate the coming Christmas season which will be all the more meaningful for us all after the events of 2020.

The music of J.S. Bach once again provides endless inpsiration and hope. We are so thrilled to finally be able to perform in public once again, especially with our wonderful vocalists who will feature in Bach’s motet ‘Lobet den Herrn’, and his ebulliant cantata for Christmas, ‘Ich freue mich in dir’.

Neal Peres Da Costa will shine in the fiendishly difficult but joyful Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, as will tenor Richard Butler and alto Hannah Fraser in two beautiful arias from Part II of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.
