John has been the professional bass for Handel Choir of Baltimore this season, and he will be featured in their upcoming final major concert, Lux aeterna, performing the aria “Hier ist das rechte Osterlamm” as part of Bach’s Christ lag in Todes Banden, BWV 4.

The performance is Sunday, April 28, 4 PM at Church of the Redeemer on North Charles Street in Baltimore.

Todd Thomas takes on the title role with Alexandra LoBianco as Senta and Justin Hopkins as Daland.
