Goethe Choir presents St Matthew Passion by J. S. Bach

Sunday, 26 February 2023, 7.00pm

The Goethe Choir is delighted to be able to present a performance of JS Bach’s magnificent St. Matthew Passion, one of the cornerstones of western civilisation – this is a rare opportunity to hear the work performed live in Ireland and one not to be missed.

The performance will be conducted by our musical director John Dexter, supported by the Goethe Ensemble, and will feature:

Evangelist: Dustin Drosdziok
Christus: Jeffrey Ledwidge
Sopranos: Katy Kelly, Aisling Kenny
Altos: Sharon Carty, Iris Fiona Nikolaou
Tenors: Christopher Bowen, Rory Lynch
Basses: Brendan Collins, Rory Musgrave

In addition our audience will be invited to join with us in singing (in unison) for five of the chorales, a practice which was common in Bach’s time

Tickets costing €30 (€25 concessions) can be obtained from choir members or purchased online.

The performance will be in German with surtitles.
