Sinfonieorchester Basel — Jauchzet! (Rejoice)
Exult, rejoice! With timpani and trumpets, Bach's “Christmas Oratorio” solemnly calls for hope and joy. Christmas means coming together, and in this spirit, the Sinfonieorchester Basel, the La Cetra Vokalensemble, and vocal soloists bring Bach's most famous vocal work to the stage to sing along. Bach wrote separate cantatas for each service from Christmas Day to Epiphany, each of which builds liturgically and musically on the previous one. It’s music that brings light, radiance, and warmth into Christmas season! The first three cantatas from the six-part work will be sung together with the audience.
Beforehand, chief conductor Ivor Bolton will rehearse from 10:00-10:30 with all those who wish to sing along. To participate, register until December 14 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are CHF 35-105 for adults and half price for students.
