St. Louis’ longest-running choral society, The Bach Society of Saint Louis, will perform a classical concert in collaboration with Missouri S&T students this October.
The performance will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, in Leach Theatre in Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The Bach Society’s music director and conductor A. Dennis Sparger and Lorie L. Francis, teaching professor of music at Missouri S&T, will conduct the Bach Society Chorus and Missouri S&T’s Chamber Choir and Jazz Choir. The concert will feature choral favorites like “Pie Jesu” and “Be Still, My Soul.” This event is sponsored by Kabekona Hills Retreat Center, Sally Carpenter and Jim and Phyllis Murphy.
The Bach Society of Saint Louis was founded in 1941 by Dr. William B. Heyne to bring the music of Johann Sebastian Bach to the St. Louis area. The chorus features approximately 60 singers, both paid professionals and experienced volunteers, who perform works by Bach and other classical and contemporary composers.
