THE DESSOFF CHOIRS CONCLUDE REFRACTED BACH: MID-WINTER FESTIVAL WITH J. S. BACH’S MASS IN B MINOR

Location: New York, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs
 J. S. Bach’s monumental and beloved masterpiece, the Mass in B Minor, will be performed by the combined forces of The Dessoff Choirs and the Arcadia Players, led by Dessoff’s Music Director Christopher Shepard, on Saturday, March 3 at 8pm at The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, 145 West 46th Street. They will be joined by vocal soloists Susan Consoli and Sabrina Learman, sopranos; Sarah Rose Taylor, mezzo-soprano; Matthew Anderson, tenor; and Thomas Jones, baritone. The concert is the culmination of Dessoff’s first-ever Midwinter Festival entitled
 
Of his approach to this Dessoff performance, which employs chamber choirs, soloists, and full choir plus a periodinstrument
ensemble, Mr. Shepard says: “Performing this work in the 21st century brings with it the challenge of dealing
not just with the intricacies of Bach’s style, but also with the rich history of performers who have preceded us since the
work’s 1900 New York premiere. From the unabashedly Romantic early 20th-century performances to the more recent
historically informed interpretations, this legacy has provided me with many masters to learn from — starting with Bach
himself.”
