The Bach Christmas Oratorio will be the Choral Society’s first live performances since the imposition of Covid-related health measures and will open the OCS’s 2021 – 2022 season. Capturing the joy and solemnity of the year-end holidays, the performances will “celebrate the return of live music and its vital role in our lives,” says OCS Artistic Director Jean-Sébastien Vallée. The concert will feature the Oratorio’s first, third, fifth and sixth cantatas, each corresponding to a day in the Christmas liturgical calendar, including the story of Christ’s birth; His worship by the shepherds; Herod’s search for the Child; and the visit of the Magi, or the Epiphany. The concert will be the perfect complement to the start of the holiday season.
