The Musical Offering
The Sebastians are a 501(c)3 non-profit and we rely on the generosity of music-lovers to continue our mission. Your support matters!
Every year the Sebastians connect with audiences through dynamic and vital performances of music of the baroque and classical eras. Hailed as “everywhere sharp-edged and engaging,” the Sebastians are known for their “energetic… youthful, vigorous performance style…” and have been called New York’s “leading young early-music ensemble” (The New York Times).
This season these inimitable musicans will present “The Mind of the Master: A Celebration of our Namesake, J. S. Bach.” The year-long celebration will include a concert of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti; a program exploring Bach’s Musical Offering; a concert of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with a newly-commissioned companion work by Tawnie Olson; the Complete J.S. Bach for Solo Violin as an installation piece; and a spectacular production of Bach’s St. John Passion with the singers of TENET.
