Leipzig after Bach

  • South Main Baptist Church 4100 Main Street Houston, TX, 77002 United States (map)

Featured Guest: Dr. Jeffrey Sposato, Associate Professor of Musicology and Director of Graduate Studies

The Houston Chamber Choir’s last concert of the 2018-2019 Season, Leipzig After Bach, provides the final piece to our diverse and entertaining season of choral music. The names Johann Doles, Johann Hiller and Johann Schicht may not register with us today but they were among those entrusted with the musical life of the Thomaskirche after the time of J.S. Bach.  Assisted by noted University of Houston scholar Jeffrey Sposato, author of the upcoming book this concert is based upon, we take a rare look into the music for chorus and orchestra of these composers whose work has been largely overshadowed by the brilliance of their illustrious predecessor. 

Following the concert, patrons and Houston Chamber Choir singers will come together to celebrate the close of another wonderful season of choral music. Details to come!
