The OSM joins end-of-year festivities with a performance of three sections from the timeless Christmas Oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach. This awe-inspiring work with choir and soloists is a musical rendering of the Nativity story in all its rejoicing, gladness and celebration. The concert will be directed by Argentinian conductor Leonardo García Alarcón, an eminent specialist of the Baroque repertoire.
