The Christmas Oratorio

Jane Glover, conductor


Christmas Oratorio

From the heaven-storming timpani of the opening chorus, the Christmas story unfolds in dramatic narrative, moving arias, and inspiring chorales—performed with the power and passion Music of the Baroque always brings to Bach’s great choral works.

Carl Grapentine will give preconcert lectures Sunday, November 25, 6:30 pm, at the Doubletree Hotel (Athens Room) adjacent to the North Shore Center, and Monday, November 26, 6:30 pm, at the Harris Theater.
