Christopher Shepard returns to the Mechanics Hall stage as conductor and director of The Worcester Chorus of Music Worcester this April 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.  Performance materials for this work have only recently become available; the Chorus will present one of the first American performances of Mendelssohn's version of this choral masterpiece.
