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
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.NSO: Koh Plays Barber info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

I was at this concert Saturday night because I had already heard it Thursday night. I'm sorry that I missed it on Friday afternoon. Dharma at Big Sur is a triumph. I have had the recording for several months but nothing beats hearing it live. Those of you who missed it should watch for other opportunities to hear it. I feel so blessed to be alive while John Adams is composing.
