Bach's Mass in B Minor @ SL Choral Artists (SLC: May 14)

"A Crowning Achievement: Mass in B Minor"

Saturday, May 14, 2011, 7:30 pm
Libby Gardner Concert Hall

The Salt Lake Choral Artists, under the direction of Dr. Brady Allred, invite you to the final concert of their 2010-2011 season: a performance of J.S. Bach’s magnificent “Mass in B Minor.”  The Mass was most likely never performed in its entirety during Bach’s lifetime and largely disappeared in the 18th century.  However, performances of the piece in the 19th century sparked a revival of both the piece and Bach’s music.  Today, the B Minor Mass is considered a supreme masterpiece of Western music and widely hailed as a monumental work of the late Baroque period.

SLCA’s performance will feature a professional chamber orchestra, well-known soloists, and a simultaneous screening of Bastian Clevé’s silent film “The Sound of Eternity,” which corresponds to the musical structure of the Mass.

The performance will take place on Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 PM in Libby Gardner Concert Hall on the University of Utah campus.  For tickets and more information, visit www.saltlakechoralartists.org .
