About the Ticket Supplier: American Bach Soloists

Named "the best American specialists in early music" by The Washington Post, the American Bach Soloists (ABS) was founded in 1989 with the mission of introducing contemporary audiences to the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach through historically informed performances. Under the leadership of cofounder and music director Jeffrey Thomas--named "a superstar among oratorio tenors" by The Wall Street Journal--the ensemble has achieved its vision of assembling the world's finest vocalists and period-instrument performers to bring this brilliant music to life.
