Music for a Winter's Eve: JS Bach - Advent and Christmas cantatas
Dec 12, 2018 at 08:00 PM – 09:00 PM
The final concert in MusicFor's second series, Music for a Winter's Eve. Artistic Director Daniel Collins (The Sixteen) directs an orchestra and soloists, all recent graduates from music college, in a performance of two of Bach's most exhilarating cantatas, Ich freue mich in dir, and Wachet Auf. All the performers are playing one-to-a-part, so this will be a wonderful evening of chamber music in the intimate setting of Holy Trinity Church. The programme also contains two other works: Bach's uplifting motet Lobet den Herrn, and the first movement of his Oboe Concerto in F major, played by fantastic oboist Zoe Cartlidge. Mince pies and mulled wine will be available from the bar!
Please note: this concert is on a Wednesday, not a Thursday like the other concerts in the series.

We have an up-and-coming string quartet comprised of award-winning musicians, a wonderful soprano who is newly graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, and a violinist who is breaking into the world's top baroque ensembles.
