In the eve of New Trinity Baroque's 25th Anniversary (coming in 2023), this year's annual Candlelight Christmas concert will feature mostly never-before performed Christmas-themed concertos and arias. Featuring NTB's incredible instrumental and vocal soloists, one will be able to enjoy music by famous composers such as Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and Purcell, as well as Valentini, Benhard, Charpentier and Lully. You will be able to hear the briliance of a baroque trumpet, the purity of a sorano voice, the subtle pluck of a chitarrone and the exuberant sound of the big baroque band. Also, the amazing sound of St. Bart's great "Rosales" organ of St. Bartholomew's, played by the church's organist Stephen Frketic, will fill in the churc . Described by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "the most satisfying concert of the holiday season – a model of how to do it," this concert is one of most popular classical music Christmas events in Atlanta. Welcome!
St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, 1790 LaVista Rd, Atlanta, GA 30329
