Join us for a historic evening featuring The Worcester Chorus with baroque & classical masters The Sebastians in a performance of J. S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor.

The Sebastians (sebastians.org) are a dynamic and vital musical ensemble specializing in music of the baroque and classical eras. Lauded as “everywhere sharp-edged and engaging” (The New York Times), the Sebastians have also been praised for their “well-thought-out articulation and phrasing” (Early Music Review) and “elegant string playing… immaculate in tuning and balance” (Early Music Today). The Sebastians  explore pairings and resonances—from music and wine, to words and music, and finally to music and dance, in a spectacular season finale featuring the Christopher Caines Dance Company in newly commissioned dances to suites by the group’s namesake, J. S. Bach. The Sebastians are currently in residence at the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, and recently released a new CD of trio sonatas and vocal works by Corelli, Colista, Handel, and Vivaldi, featuring soprano Awet Andemicael.
