Conductor Scott Tucker leads several esteemed soloists and the Choral Arts Chorus in a performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's sublime Mass in B Minor at The Kennedy Center Concert Hall. This musical setting of the entire Latin mass is famed for its brilliant harmonies, instrumental solos and depth of feeling. Completed in 1749, after taking Bach 15 years to complete, the choral masterwork has been called a "cathedral in sound," highlighted by its beautiful arias and glittering choruses. The beloved Baroque composer died a year after finishing the magnum opus and never heard it performed in its entirety. Don't miss this transcendent musical experience as it's brought to vivid life by the acclaimed Choral Arts. Learn More
