Bach’s St John Passion is more than one of the greatest of all sacred works. It’s a profound spiritual drama; a searching musical exploration of eternal hopes and sorrows. Jeannette Sorrell founded the dynamic American baroque ensemble Apollo’s Fire, and she understands the power of this music from the inside. With members from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and soloists including our resident artist Roderick Williams, this unique, dramatized performance of Bach’s masterpiece should speak more powerfully than ever.

Please note that this performance will be sung in English

This performance will be joined by Paul Whittaker OBE, who will provide British Sign Language (BSL) for the concert. Paul has previously provided BSL for St John Passion with Britten Sinfonia, as well as working with various other orchestras, choirs and festivals to provide this vital service.
Please email Box Office at ticketing@liverpoolphil.com for further details on booking the best seats to view Paul.
