Arts Calendar 

  • Although the arts are best experienced up close and personal, the spread of Covid-19 has required people to stay at a safe distance from others. Adapting to this new reality has many arts businesses expanding their digital foot print.
  • Now, we’ve assembled a new resource to highlight the virtual activities that our members are producing. Please page through the latest version of the Calendar Launch Pad on the right.

The Arts Calendar, the go-to resource for arts and culture events in the three county region, is produced by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council. Below on this page is a digital version of the calendar.

    First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem
    Presented by Bach Choir of Bethlehem
    Phone
    610-866-4382

    Maurice Duruflé:

    Requiem is Duruflé’s longest and most substantial work, composed at the end of World War II. The Requiem Op. 9 is suffused throughout with the melodies of Gregorian chant, and by the impressionist harmonies of Debussy, Dukas, and Ravel.  It balances a tremendous mystic sense of peace with moments of extraordinary power, including in the sanctus, one of the greatest musical climaxes in all of 20th century music.

    George Frederic Handel:

    After our much-acclaimed performances of Part I for Christmas of 2019, the long-delayed exploration of Handel’s Messiah continues with Part II of this baroque masterpiece. Messiah Part II delves into the Passion, Resurrection, Ascension, and reign in glory, beginning with the haunting chorus, “Behold the Lamb of God.” When The Choir erupts with zeal into the famous “Hallelujah Chorus,” it will have special meaning for us all.

    Tickets: $39, Students (up to 22) $9
