An Update on the March 13-15 St. John Passion Performances

It is with great sadness that the Dryden Ensemble announces that we are canceling the performances on Saturday, March 14 at 7:30 pm at All Saints’ Church in Princeton and on Sunday, March 15 at 3:00 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury. The panel discussion at 3:00 pm on March 14 at All Saints’ Church has also been cancelled.

 

The performance on Friday, March 13 at 7:30 at All Saints’ Church in Princeton will go forward since New Jersey TV had already committed to filming it. We will also be making an audio recording of that concert which we hope to make available to the public at some time in the future.

 

Tickets will not be sold at the door for the March 13th concert, but we will honor any tickets already purchased for any of the three performances.

 

If you do decide to attend, we ask that you exercise caution, bow to friends from a distance, and, if possible, sit at least six feet from other audience members. We have set up additional chairs to make this easier. Please refrain from approaching the musicians at the end of the concert and, above all, do not attend if you are not well.

 

The text and translation of Bach’s St. John Passion will be available. To help defray costs, we suggest a donation of $2 if you would like a copy of it.

 

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to drydenensemble@gmail.com.


Refunds will be available on request, but if you are able to, please declare your ticket cost as a donation, and we will provide you an acknowledgement of this for tax purposes.

Another option is
to declare your ticket cost as a donation, and we will provide you an acknowledgement of this
