109th Bethlehem Bach Festival: Bach at 4 – "How Brightly Shines"

Don’t miss out on the new Festival venue that so many audience members at last year’s re- imagined Festival told us they loved! Greg Funfgeld hosts an intimate concert in the beautiful Incarnation of Our Lord Church and introduces works performed by members of The Bach Choir and Bach Festival Orchestra including the Festival premiere of Cantata 96 Herr Christ, der eige Gottessohn (Lord Christ, only son of God). Tricia Van Oers, sopranino recorder, paints a wonderful image of Christ as the Morning Star, Agnes Zsigovics and Daniel Taylor revel in Bach and Handel duets, and principal cellist Loretta O’Sullivan plays a sonata by Bach contemporary Francesco Geminiani.
