A Message from J. Reilly Lewis, Founder and Music Director
Once again it is my great pleasure to welcome you to another season of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his contemporaries in our favorite venue of National Presbyterian Church with its fine acoustics and splendid Æolian-Skinner organ.
This season, we explore Bach’s Italian influences, and enjoy a plethora of music for chorus, solo voices and instruments. 2013 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of composer Benjamin Britten, and you’ll hear that the singers of the Consort have tremendous artistic versatility and range beyond the baroque. After almost a decade, the Consort is once again presenting Bach’s intensely dramatic setting of the St. John Passion during the Lenten Season. We’ll also celebrate the 300th birthday of C.P.E. Bach, whose dazzling, innovative music is featured in the final concert of the season.
Thank you for joining us this season. It’s an honor to share this music with you, and I and the musicians of the Consort thank you for your support.
Founded in 1977 by J. Reilly Lewis, the Washington Bach Consort is a professional chorus and orchestra noted for its performances of 18th-Century music on period instruments. Its mission is to perform to the highest artistic standards the music of J.S. Bach and his Baroque contemporaries.
