Bach at One: Twelfth Night Festival
Trinity’s Twelfth Night Festival returns, celebrating the twelve days of the nativity with a full program of events from December 26 through January 6. Julian Wachner leads the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra in performances of seasonal Bach cantatas, and holiday-themed choral works by English composer Benjamin Britten, whose centennial Trinity has been honoring since September with “Celebrating Britten,” “a most exciting and worthy project” (New York Times).
The Festival also will include guest performances by NOVUS NY, Gotham Early Music Scene (GEMS), The Clarion Society, Gotham Chamber Opera, Quicksilver, and New York Polyphony.
