Ashmont Hill Chamber Music kicks off its 2019-2020 season on Sun., Sept. 22 at 4 p.m., with a Bach Project concert featuring the critically-acclaimed bass-baritone Dashon Burton performing at All Saints’ Church in Ashmont. Burton will join the Bach Project Orchestra and the boys of the All Saints’ Choir to offer a concert of music by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), featuring cantatas 82 and 158, as well as solo instrumental music to round out the program.
The Bach Project— directed by Andrew Sheranian — is a collaborative endeavor between the music program at the Parish of All Saints Ashmont and Ashmont Hill Chamber Music. Now in its third season, the Bach Project exists to bring the music of Bach to audiences in Dorchester through live performances at All Saints’ Church in Ashmont.
Praised for his “nobility and rich tone,” (The New York Times) and his “enormous, thrilling voice seemingly capable of raising the dead;” (Wall Street Journal), bass-baritone Dashon Burton has established a world-wide career in opera, recital, and in many works with orchestra. In key elements of his repertoire Dashon is a frequent guest with ensembles such as Philharmonia Baroque, the Handel and Haydn Society, and Boston Baroque among many others. In addition to his work as a soloist, Dashon is also a member of the Grammy award-winning vocal project Roomful of Teeth.
