St. Philip’s Friends of Music and Tucson Chamber Artists are devoting this weekend to celebrating the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach.
The Friends is hosting its 23rd annual Bach Marathon with recitals throughout the day Saturday and performances during church services on Sunday.
TCA, Tucson’s professional chorus, will perform Bach’s “St. John Passion” three times this weekend, starting with a concert Friday in Green Valley.
The concerts aren’t related, although both groups are cross-promoting the events. Jeffrey Campbell, the church’s principal organist, also is principal organist for TCA and will perform for both groups.
