High drama, extraordinary music and a stellar line up of performers: three reasons among many to come to St Matthew Passion on Saturday. We hope you’ll join us for this rare opportunity to hear J.S. Bach’s masterpiece.

Three choirs (the Peterborough Singers form a double choir, plus the Bach Children’s Chorus) and an array of soloists and instrumentalists make a performance of the Passion a unique experience, one that promises to be both monumental and moving.

When: Saturday, May 11, 7:00 p.m.
WhereEmmanuel United Church: 534 George St N, Peterborough, ON
Tickets: $40 general admission; $10 students, available on this website, Pammett’s Flower Shop, Ashburnham Foot & Ankle Centre, Happenstance Books & Yarns (Lakefield), or at the door.

The Performers: The Peterborough Singers conducted by Syd Birrell; soloists Michael Colvin, Janelle Lucyk, Ian Sabourin and Alex Dobson; the Bach Children’s Chorus conducted by Charissa Bagan; Ian Sadler (organ), Christopher Bagan (continuo organ), Felix Deák (cello/continuo), Emily Richardson (flute), Chris Vishy (oboe) and Jimin Dobson (violin).

Seating Update: If you’ve heard the Peterborough Singers this season you’ll know that the concerts, while within capacity limits of Emmanuel United Church, have had a wonderful turnout — thank you! But in order to ensure everyone is seated in a timely fashion we’ve made a few refinements to the seating process, as follows:

  • Tickets will be taken at the top of the stairs
  • Pick up reserved tickets, or purchase tickets, at the main entrance
  • More ushers will be available to help you find a seat
  • Series ticket holders’ reserved seats will be held until 15 minutes before start time

Thank you for supporting choral music in the Peterborough community — we look forward to seeing you at this special performance!
