Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church presents concerts and recitals throughout the year. Details about our 2018-2019 performances are listed below.
- Good Friday Concert: J.S. Bach’s St. Mark Passion. Friday, April 19, 7:30 p.m. Free-will offering. The BMPC Sanctuary Choir, Bryn Mawr Chamber Singers, and The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia present Bach’s oratorio, St. Mark Passion. Although his obituary tells us Bach wrote five Passions, only two of them - St. Matthew and St. John - have survived complete. It’s thought the first performance of the St. Mark Passion took place on March 23 in 1731, but subsequently the score of the music disappeared. Tantalizingly, all that remained was the text. After some keen detective work on Bach’s music however, enough evidence surfaced to make a reconstruction possible. We will present the 2001 version, with all 16 of the original Bach chorales preserved.
