schutz image big

We welcome one and all to join Musica Nuova, The Weckmann Project, and Parthenia: A Consort of Viols for a staged production of Heinrich Schütz’s famous Christmas Oratorio!

Conducted by Jeffrey Grossman, this show combines singers, period instrumentalists, the gorgeous music of Heinrich Schütz in the original German,and the wonderful stage direction of Walker Lewis to create a musical extravaganza that will start off the holiday season with a bang!

Performances will take place at Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Heights, New York, with a special family-friendly concert held on Sunday afternoon, where children under ten will be welcomed for free.

Shows will take place on Saturday, December 6, 7 PM; and Sunday, December 7, 4 PM.

We hope to make this an annual December event in both New York City and Boston in years to come.

Would you like to help make this happen?
