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

Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah is action-packed with whirlwinds, earthquakes and plenty of fire…interspersed with glorious moments of peace and serenity with familiar arias and well-known choruses. Mendelssohn would be celebrating his 200th birthday in 2009, so come help the Master Chorale of Washington start his birthday season in style with an inspiring performance of this great work.
