J.S. Bach Christmas Oratorio

Published by Harvard Glee Club on

Celebrate the season with the Harvard Choruses in a rare performance of J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in Sanders Theatre. Composed in 1734 for the holiday festivities in Leipzig, this collection of cantatas consists of some of the most exhilarating and inventive music that Bach ever wrote. The Harvard Glee Club, the Radcliffe Choral Society, and the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum join a professional orchestra and student soloists to present parts I, II, and III of the work. The concert is made possible by the Barbara Connolly Lewis (’49, MA, ’51) Memorial Fund and marks the first large-scale, choral-orchestral performance by the Choruses since 2019.
