The Choir of Trinity Wall Street is joined by the Juilliard415 instrumental ensemble and a youth choir composed of local children to perform Johann Sebastian Bach's “Saint Matthew Passion” at Aiken's First Baptist Church on Friday.

The concert was the final performance of Juilliard in Aiken's sixth annual Performing Arts Festival and Outreach Program.

Composed in 1727 for solo voices, double choir and double orchestras, the piece recounts the story of Christ's final days.

More than 1,000 tickets were sold for the performance, according to organizers.
