Galloway Twp., NJ – The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey’s Oratorio Society will perform Bach’s Passion According to St. Matthew, Saturday, April 29 at the Stockton Performing Arts Center.


Tickets are $8 for the general public, $6 for students and seniors with ID.  


“This is one of the greatest masterworks ever written for a choral presentation,” said Dr. Beverly Vaughn, Stockton Professor of Music who will direct the event. “This is Stockton’s first time presenting this oratorio and we’re pleased to bring it back to the area.”


Vaughn said the event would feature the Stockton Oratorio Society’s 75 voice choir and special guest soloists, as well as a 22-piece chamber orchestra.


“We have a diverse group of students, faculty, staff and community members making up this group, from Tuckerton to Cape May,” Vaughn said.  “It is really a town and gown collaboration.”
