Blue Heron: Ockeghem@600

Sunday, March 10th, 2019; 4:00PM

Blue Heron continues their Ockeghem series with one of his most celebrated works, the astoundingly complex yet captivatingly beautiful Missa Prolationum, constructed (like Bach’s Goldberg Variations) as a series of canons at different intervals—but Ockeghem’s are double canons, in which four sung parts are generated from two written ones. A truly mind-expanding musical experience!

Scott Metcalfe, Conducting

Free pre-concert talk by Sean Gallagher (NEC) at 7:15 PM / Doors open at 7 PM

The Ad Astra Music Festival season ends with a performance of J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion.

The Russell Community Choir will sing parts of the work in a modern English translation commissioned for this performance, while our visiting artists will perform the bulk of the piece in a style close to what would've been heard in Bach's time. The visiting artists are brought to Russell in part from a grant from the Russell County Area Community Foundation.

John Nelson, Conducting

Created from “outstanding imagination and beauty” (The Guardian), Mendelssohn’s final and reverent composition is one of the most successful oratorios of the Victorian age. Music and opera lovers of all kinds will appreciate the dramatic treatment of the life of the prophet – summoning the people to righteousness, performing miracles, struggling against idol-worshippers, confronting a wicked queen, and rising to heaven in a fiery chariot. Conducted by one of America’s principal conductors and recipient of the Juilliard Irving Berlin conducting prize, John Nelson.

Oregon Bach Festival Berwick Chorus
JoAnn Falletta, conducting

A world premiere event! Situated in the historical musical legacy of Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions, The Passion of Yeshua creates space for voices traditionally silent/silenced in retellings of the Biblical narrative. Drawing from Messianic texts, and specifically highlighting the voices of Mary, Mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene, the text – presented in both Hebrew and English – brings the last twelve hours of Jesus’ life back to its Jewish origins.

Shortly after arriving in Leipzig in the summer of 1723, Bach composed two cantatas within a month of each other. The 2018 Discovery Series, led by Back Bay Chorale Music Director Scott Allen Jarrett, examines the two works written during this formative time in Bach’s life. The second installment, “Herr, gehe nicht ins Gericht mit deinem Knecht,” is often considered to be the first cantata wholly composed in Leipzig and features a joyful tenor aria.
