10th Anniversary St. James Bach Cantata Vespers

Celebrate two anniversaries at the first Bach Cantata of the 2015-16 season on Sunday, October 25th at 5:00pm.  Bach’s Cantata 76 “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen!” (Exult in God in every land!) for soprano and trumpet solos starts off the 10th anniversary St. James cantata season.  This particular cantata was also chosen to celebrate St. James 125th Anniversary.  Soprano Christine Welch Elder and Oregon Symphony principal trumpet Jeffrey Work are the featured soloists.  The St. James Bach choir will also sing a Magnificat by Heinrich Schuetz and Benjamin Britten’s “Jubilate Deo” for choir and organ.  Pre-service music begins at 4:40pm.  Freewill offering.  Bring a friend!  Reception follows in the Pioneer Chapel.
