JS Bach: The Saint Matthew Passion

Palm Sunday, March 24, 2013 | 3:00 PM

For 200 years, scholars and critics, musicians and people of all religious persuasions have agreed that Johann Sebastian Bach’s setting of St. Matthew’s narrative of the passion is one of the great glories of western civilization.  Many who have experienced its sublimity call it one of the great events of their lives.  Juxtaposing the gospel text with devotional poetry and traditional Lutheran chorales, the St. Matthew Passion is a profound spiritual and musical experience. The Tuscarawas Philharmonic is proud to present this masterpiece to the community.
