Choir of St. Thomas, Leipzig (Thomanerchor) with the Liepzig Baroque Orchestra

Friday, November 8, 2013 8:00pm

Johann Sebastian Bach’s own, the legendary
ST. THOMAS BOYS CHOIR of LEIPZIG
(Thomanerchor)
Georg Christoph Biller, Thomaskantor and Conductor
with the Leipzig Baroque Orchestra

 

 

 

Established in the year 1212, Bach led the choir for 27 years and together they premiered countless of his works. The St. Thomas Boys Choir continues as a major institution in Germany: they maintain their own school just a stone’s throw from the St. Thomas church, they regularly perform with the Gewandhaus Orchestra, and they’ve even been featured on a postage stamp! The choir will tour with the Leipzig Baroque Orchestra, with whom they’ve recorded the B Minor Mass.
