Bach Mass in B minor
Malcolm Merriweather, Conductor
When was the last time you sang in public? Are you a choral music buff but don't have time to belong to a chorus? Join others in raising the roof with song. Blow away your vocal cobwebs and experience the great fun and satisfaction of singing as part of a group.
Keep your passion for singing alive by joining the New York Choral Society for its 52nd annual celebration of summer. It's easy: we lend you the scores for the evening, provide accompaniment and soloists in the comfortable air-conditioned surroundings at Peter Norton Symphony Space Leonard Nimoy Thalia, and YOU are the chorus.
The Bach Mass in B minor was pronounced "the greatest artwork of all times and all people" by the nineteenth-century editor Hans George Nägeli. Today, it is widely hailed as a monumental work of the late baroque period and is performed frequently in the world's leading concert halls.
