Jesus, Son of Our Father
Apr. 30, 2023 4:00 pm
Historic Academy Theatre

The Jefferson Choral Society presents an oratorio written in the classical tradition by Virginia composer Aaron Garber in collaboration with librettist Richard Bansemer, a retired Lutheran pastor and former Bishop of the Virginia Synod. The production is scored for a 35-piece orchestra and features baritone soloist Philip Bouknight in the starring role of Jesus and tenor Jeff Prillaman. The oratorio is based on the Gospel of John and tells the story of the events leading up to the crucifixtion and ends with the plaintively gut-wrenching injunction of Jesus to follow Him. The performance marks the Lynchburg premiere of Jesus, Son of Our Father. Visit academycenter.org or call (434) 846-8499 for tickets.

The Jefferson Choral Society would like to extend our appreciation to our concert season sponsors. The programs were supported in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, which receives support from the Virginia General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; The Easley Foundation; and The Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation.
