Music expresses feelings - from deep sadness to comforting certainty to exuberant joy, to name just a very broad spectrum. The Swiss Youth Choir under the direction of Nicolas Fink will bring a whole kaleidoscope of emotions to the Stadtkirche Thun at the end of the Bachwochen Thun 2024. Accompanied by the Orchestra La Scintilla on period instruments and with a high-calibre quartet of soloists, the young singers will present the lively Pentecost cantata "Erschallet, ihr Lieder, erklinget, ihr Saiten !" and the cantata "Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis", which develops from deep distress and despair into consolation and praise of God.
