Enlightenment Festival: Beginning | End
PATRICK DUPRE QUIGLEY, CONDUCTOR
Joyous arrivals and awe-inspiring departures feature in the closing concert of Seraphic Fire’s third annual Enlightenment Festival. The first two cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio portray an expectant mother preparing for a child’s arrival and the Magi searching for that child. The Ascension Oratorio is particularly thrilling with spectacular opening and closing trumpets, its coloratura passages, and equally challenging chorale. Chamber orchestra and students from the UCLA Ensemble Artist Program join Seraphic Fire singers to perform two of Bach’s great works in a burst of sonic glory in this arresting program.
PROGRAM TO INCLUDE:
Johann Sebastian Bach: Christmas Oratorio, BWV 248
Johann Sebastian Bach: Ascension Oratorio, BWV 11
