St. Matthew Passion

Music, Classical and opera
St Matthew Passion

It's ten days before Easter, but this is about as good as sacred music gets. Grammy-winning conductor John Nelson leads the fourth annual Chicago Bach Project in a one-night-only performance of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. Nelson recently released a DVD of the same work, but you need to see it—feel it—in person. The Chicago Bach Choir & Orchestra, with performers from the Lyric, CSO and Grant Park Music Festival, chip in with the music.
