"We're excited to be performing for the first time in Holy Trinity, whose sterling acoustic will allow you to hear the brilliant intricacies of Bach's most festive music," Maestro Brandau says. "And we're thrilled we'll be joined by Early Music luminaries John Thiessen, Priscilla Herreid, Geoffrey Burgess, and Cynthia Roberts."
