Baritone William Sharp is a consummate artist possessing the rare combination of vocal beauty, sensitivity, and charisma. A treasured favorite of ABS’s audiences, his performances of Bach’s music are legendary. In this one-of-a-kind program, William Sharp will present Bach arias that he loves, accompanied by ABS instrumentalists, and including his own personal comments about the music, the texts, and their combined meanings.
The evening begins with a guided tour of the beautiful art, sculptures, frescoes, and architecture that make Grace Cathedral the place of peace and serenity that it is. The tour will feature all of the works that are featured in ABS’s beautiful film, “Handel’s Messiah in Grace Cathedral.” Following the concert in the Chapel of Grace—one of the most magnificent yet intimate spaces in the Cathedral—those in attendance will enjoy a special reception to meet and greet our incomparable musical artist for the evening, William Sharp.
