Annapolis Chorale to perform concert in restored church

The Annapolis Chorale will perform Bach's "St. Matthew's Passion" tomorrow evening at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Annapolis - the first major event there since work was undertaken on a major restoration of the landmark building on Church Circle.

Work on the million-dollar-plus project had prompted a postponement of the concert from March 24.

Ernest J. Green, Chorale music director, will lead the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and soloists in the performance, featuring Bach's original score for two choruses and two orchestras.

The concert is scheduled for 6 p.m. and will include a dinner break of about an hour. Though ticket-dinner packages are sold out, tickets for the concert will be available at the door for $22.50, or $12 for students. Dinner at nearby restaurants is suggested during the break.
