CONCERT: Orpheus Singers – Bach-Mozart Concert
Dec 9 @ 19:30

orpheus singersCome join the Orpheus Singers on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 pm for their Bach-Mozart Concert, at the Church of St. John the Evangelist, 137 Président-Kennedy, Montréal (Métro Place-des-Arts, bus 80).

Let the award-winning Orpheus Singers ring in this holiday season with two beautifully contrasting choral works. The first, a motet by J.S. Bach entitled Jesu meine Freude (BWV 227), is representative of the high baroque style. The second work on the program is the Missa Brevis K.192 by W.A. Mozart. Composed by the young Mozart when he was only 18 years old, this mass, which will be performed with organ and strings, is very lyrical in the classical tradition. Of course, no concert would be complete without a few holiday favorites, to escort us with good cheer into the New Year.

Tickets are $20 at the door / students and seniors $15 at the door
