The Event

The Johannesburg Bach Choir, with the support of Istituto Italiano di culture, Consolato Generale d'Italia, and the Italian-South African Cultural Centre, presents a programme Christmas music on two Sundays in November 2018.

The choir will be joined by members of the Apple Green Chamber Orchestra and organist to provide an afternoon of beautifully melodies. Among the popular items will be two pieces from Handel's Messiah, "And the glory of the Lord" and the ever-popular "Hallelujah Chorus".

The much loved Schubert "Ave Maria" will be played by the orchestra, while the Johannesburg Bach Choir will thrill all with the exuberance of JS Bach's "Sanctus" from his monumental B Minor Mass.

Other pieces by the orchestra include Corelli's Concerto Grosso Op 6, No 8, popularly known as the Christmas Concerto. All four movements of this popular piece will be played during the concert.

Rounding off this pleasant afternoon will be Rossini's "O salutaris hostia" and the Italian Christmas carol "Tu scendi dalle stelle".
