RENOWNED BACH COLLEGIUM JAPAN COMING TO VALPO


Valparaiso University will host the Bach Collegium Japan, renowned worldwide for its exceptional performances of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music, in a premier cultural event for the greater Chicago region on March 19, 2011. The concert, sponsored by the Bach Institute at Valparaiso University, will showcase the enduring power of one of history’s greatest composers of sacred music in the magnificent Chapel of the Resurrection.

The critically-acclaimed combined baroque orchestra and chorus, led by famed Bach conductor Masaaki Suzuki, will perform Bach’s Mass in B Minor at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel. The concert will be the Bach Collegium Japan’s only Chicago-area appearance during its first North American tour since 2006.
