2024 Spring Concert: Bach Inspired

The Bach Choir of Bethlehem invites you to a captivating Spring Concert, delving into the timeless brilliance of Bach’s festive cantata 80, which was first heard in the U.S. in Bethlehem at Central Moravian Church in 1823 and will be heard across two centuries. In a juxtaposition, The Bach Choir will also present the powerful To the Hands, by Pulitzer prize-winning contemporary composer Caroline Shaw. Also, the audience will experience a glimpse of The Bach Choir’s upcoming European tour and will unveil select musical gems.  This concert offers an opportunity to be a part of a musical expedition as we explore the connections between the rich past and dynamic present of choral music. It’s a musical journey that you will want to join – one that connects the past and present of choral music, bridging generations and cultures through the power of the voice!


Our Spring Concert takes you with us on our trip to Leipzig as we perform repertoire we will bring to our European audiences. You’ll enjoy the renowned cantata Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, which received its first U.S. performance 200 years ago right here in Bethlehem, combined with music by Buxtehude and Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Caroline Shaw. We hope you’ll join us! ~ Christopher Jackson
