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 crucifixion and ends with the plaintively gut-wrenching injunction of Jesus to follow Him.
This performance marks the Lynchburg premiere of Jesus, Son of Our Father.
