TENET and the Sebastians team up to perform J.S. Bach's St. John Passion in an unconducted performance with an extraordinary cast! Jeffrey Grossman will lead the two ensembles from the chamber organ with tenor Aaron Sheehan as the Evangelist. TENET's performances have been hailed as "adventurous and expressive" by The New York Times, and this collaboration performance between the Sebastians and TENET is a MUST SEE!

Admission with your ticket
You are invited to a conversation with musicologist Michael Marissen about the St. John Passion, including how we as modern listeners can and should grapple with the controversial—some would say anti-Semitic—texts. Marissen is the the Daniel Underhill Professor Emeritus of Music at Swarthmore College and the author of Bach & God as well as other scholarly investigations into the culture and history surrounding music of the baroque.
