Bach's St. Matthew Passion

The Worcester Chorus performs Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, in Mendelssohn’s arrangement, at Mechanics Hall

Chris Shepard returns to Mechanics Hall as conductor and director of The Worcester Chorus of Music Worcester with a program featuring the St. Matthew Passion.

With his 1829 rediscovery of Bach's St. Matthew Passion, Felix Mendelssohn kicked off a revival of Bach's music that has only gained steam over the last century. The Chorus will present one of the first American performances of Mendelssohn's version of this choral masterpiece.
