Saint John Passion: An Eastertide Oratorio
- J. S. Bach, St. John Passion
- Performed by the MusicaNova Orchestra, Soloists, and Chorus
- Audience invited to sing along with the hymn-like Chorales
- A pre-concert discussion at 2 PM looks at the background of the work

One of Bachs most unusual creations, the oratorio recounts the last days in the life of Jesus, based on  the Luther Bible, Martin Luthers own German translation from the Greek, through the voices of The Evangelist, Jesus, and Pontius Pilate.  

The MusicaNova Singers, comprising the finest professional singers in the Valley of the Sun, perform Bachs glorious arias and choruses, joined by the renowned MusicaNova Orchestra, playing the original orchestration on period instruments.  In a unique feature, the oratorio will be sung in English (Novello edition) and audience members are invited to sing along with the many hymn-like chorales as they did in Bachs day.

A pre-concert discussion at 2 PM, led by Dr. Bruce Johnson, pastor of Scottsdale Presbyterian, and Warren Cohen, MusicaNova Music Director, explores backgrounds of both the text and music.
