Camden Opera House will be the site of a rare Lenten season performance of this masterwork by J.S. Bach, the Saint John Passion. Composed in 1724, this work of religious drama represents Bach at the height of his emotional power. Conducted by Anthony Antolini, the music director of the Bowdoin Chorus and the DownEast Singers, this is a fully staged concert production with the Mozart Mentors Orchestra, a forty voice community chorus, and soloists Richard Fiske, Joelle Morris, and Erin Chenard. David Myers sings the role of the Evangelist and Jerry LiaBraaten, pastor of Nativity Lutheran Church in Rockport depicts Jesus.
The concert is in celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of Nativity Church, and all profits go to benefit the Hospitality House shelter for women, and the Rockland Food Bank. General admission tickets are $20; please consider purchasing a patron reserved seat for $50 to help support these worthy projects. Together we are a community making music to benefit our community.
