The Richmond Choral Society will be presenting a program titled “J.S. Bach the Reformer” Saturday evening at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church on Monument Avenue in Richmond. The concert highlights the 500th anniversary of the Reformation with the performance of three cantatas by Bach. The ensemble, now in their 71st year, is led by conductor Markus Compton and will be joined by a full orchestra, organist Christopher Martin and soloists Lisa Edwards-Burrs (soprano), Gabrielle Maes (alto), Kenneth Wood (tenor) and David Newman (bass).
Markus Compton and Lisa Edwards-Burrs stopped by our 88.9 WCVE studios to chat with me about the upcoming performance. Enjoy our discussion!
Yours in good music,
Classical Music Host, 88.9 WCVE
