MasterVoices is excited to invite our St. John Passion audience to take part in our unique performance* of Bach’s choral masterpiece at Carnegie Hall on February 9, 2017 at 7pm**.
We welcome you to come to Carnegie Hall prepared to sing-along with Bach’s chorales by utilizing the practice materials below.
MasterVoices is holding a group rehearsal with Artistic Director Ted Sperling for all February 9 ticket holders who are interested in rehearsing the chorales in advance. This rehearsal will take place on Wednesday, February 8 from 6-8pm at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Manhattan (405 W 59th Street; entrance on 9th Avenue). Please note that this rehearsal is with piano only — no soloists or orchestra will be present.
* Please note that MasterVoices is performing St. John Passion in a new, modern-day English translation written by Michael Slattery (who will sing the role of the Evangelist)
