      Passion According to

      Saint John, by J.S. Bach

      May 17th, 18th, and 19th

      B.A.C.H. Revisits
      Saint John Passion

      Conducted by the Director Andrew J. Chung, one of the Bay Area’s
      youngest conductors to visit this piece for the second time; his
      conducting style has been described as “lively and heartfelt direction
      resonated through every section, from beginning to end.” Mr. Chung
      will also be playing the role of Jesus, metaphorically emphasizing the
      idea that Jesus Christ had a guiding role in the events leading up to
      his death, thus fulfilling his divine purpose as is shown in the
      Gospel of St. John. B.A.C.H. presents J.S. Bach's masterpiece, St.
      John Passion a second time, since its first performance in 2001 in
      Berkeley, Bakersfield and Long Beach. B.A.C.H. is a professional vocal
      and orchestral ensemble based in the Bay Area comprised of young
      professional musicians dedicated to the promotion of Classical music
      to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The soloists are selected
      from the chorus, comprised of singers who regularly perform in
      professional music ensembles throughout the Bay Area. As it has moved
      from a student run group at UC Berkeley to a professional level group,
      B.A.C.H. revisits one of its most beloved pieces, performing in three
      locations in the Bay Area: San Francisco, Berkeley, and San Jose.

      Johannes Passion is a musical composition by Johann Sebastian Bach
      that was first performed in 1724. The text for the body of the work is
      taken from The Gospel According to St. John chapters 18 and 19. Bach
      used Martin Luther's translation of the Bible with only slight
      modifications. The program will be performed Thursday, May 17th, at
      Trinity Episcopal Church in San Francisco; Friday, May 18th at St.
      Mary Magdalene Church in Berkeley and Saturday, May 19th in San Jose.
