The tribute will be held in Chestnut Hill, at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, the very place where Korn has originally launched the Bach Festival in 1976. The program features the music of J.S. Bach and Felix Mendelssohn, including motet Jesu, mine Freude, which the now closed Philadelphia Singers choir sang on numerous occasions under his direction.
