J.S. BACH St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, first performed on Good Friday 1727, is widely considered one of the crowning artistic achievements of Western Civilization. Bach’s masterful musical interpretation of the Last Supper and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, puts chapters 26 and 27 of the Gospel of Matthew to music and spans 131 minutes. The Symphony’s production is unusual in that it is a full staging of the work with the Colorado Symphony Chorus. Featured tenor Nicholas Phan takes on the part of the Evangelist and baritone Hadleigh Adams performs the role of Jesus.
Don’t miss these performances: They are truly some of the most profound events of this season — or any other.

MAHLER Symphony No. 3 in D minor

Andrew Litton takes the audience on a musical journey with Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3. The 99-minute, six-movement masterpiece is a rare treat at Boettcher Concert Hall. Mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, a vocalist with an international reputation, is a local favorite. DeYoung's credentials are impeccable: the 2003 recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony won Michelle a Grammy Award® for Best Classical Album. This one is sure to be the biggest (and best) performance you will see all spring!
