Passion and Persecution: The Music of Bach, the Gospel of John, and Religious Intolerance|
A Community Discussion presented by the San Francisco Bach Choir
J.S. Bach's Passion According to St. John stands alone as a musical masterwork, yet reflects a dark history.
In advance of our performances in May, the SF Bach Choir will present a panel of four scholars who will illuminate the work's historical and musical context, and will explore the impact of anti-Semitism during Bach's time and beyond.
Attendees will be invited to join the conversation following the panel discussion.
Tom Hall (Moderator), Former music director of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society
Jonathan Sheehan, Co-founder and co-director of the Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion, UC-Berkeley
Kirsi I. Stjerna, Professor of Lutheran History and Theology at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley
John Efron, Koret Professor of Jewish History at U.C. Berkeley
