      EVENT DETAILS
      Ex Cathedra: JS Bach's St John Passion

      Bach's St John Passion tells the profound human drama of Christ's last days with utterly transfixing music. The pulsating opening chorus sets the mood, and we are drawn to share the anger of the mob, to empathize with Pilate's predicament, and to feel the anguish of the solo arias, heightened by the melancholic sounds of the period instruments - not least the tender agony of 'Es ist vollbracht' (It is finished).

      Ex Cathedra are delighted to give their traditional Good Friday performance as part of Town Hall Symphony Hall's Birmingham Classical season.

      Sung in German with English surtitles.

      There will be a 30-minute interval and the concert will end at approximately 4:15pm.

      Cost: £43 / £39 / £30 / £23 / £12.50 (including per ticket commission); student, under 18s, aged 18-30, and concert package discounts also available
