The Christmas Story: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

The Christmas Story: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio

Presented by Washington Bach Consort at Music Center at Strathmore

The Washington Bach Consort brings an enduring European Christmas tradition to America every year—Bach’s Christmas Oratorio—the ultimate musical experience of the holiday season. Add to this the splendor of the Music Center at Strathmore and you’ve found yourself in the perfect occasion! The Washington Post raved about 2019’s “splendid,” “joyful” performance. Our chorus sang with a “bright, forthright sound, its phrasing as word-responsive as its blend was polished and supple.” Chorus and orchestra were together praised as “a tight and responsive group”—one that “could go head-to-head with period ensembles anywhere.” Join us for our return to Strathmore!
