Very enjoyable evening, with the Carnegie Hall stage filled with hundreds of singers. The Monroe Crossing bluegrass band was terrific!

Heard the word "bluegrass" and bought tickets blind, no idea what this was, thought we'd be in the nosebleed section. Row J center orchestra, fabulous introduction to the combination of choral sacred music and bluegrass from "the only full-time...continued

Good seat; even though it was rear orchestra, I could see and hear everything perfectly. I especially enjoyed the second half of the program, Monroe Crossing without the chorus, and the bluegrass mass by Carol Barnett.

It was a fun program and I liked the contrast between Bluegrass and choral singers. One of my favorite moments was after the intermission, when Monroe Crossing took the stage solo and played some authentic Bluegrass on their own. Carnegie Hall is...continued

I don't really think large choral ensembles are suited to the bluegrass genre. I didn't like the first half, but stayed for the second anyway. Monroe Crossing, a Minnesota bluegrass band, amused with a few songs before a bluegrass mass, in which...continued

It wasn't quite what we were expecting. It was more of a classical concert featuring bluegrass instruments and a huge choir. But it was very interesting.

I enjoyed the entire concert, music, conductors, soloists and spirituality. I particularly enjoyed Monroe Crossing and would have liked to hear more bluegrass folk, popular and country songs. The musicians are extremely talented and entertaining.

A total surprise. I expected only to hear some live bluegrass music to be played by Monroe crossing. Instead, I experienced a totally unexpected chorale, a beautifully conceived and presented vocal symphony supported by the delicately and subtly...continued

This was not a Bluegrass Concert. It was a vanity conference of Christian music.

Wow...and that's not to be misconstrued as "wow, as in great". I had no idea that a 500 person choir would be joining the band. It was just not good. I felt like I was at an Episcopalian Christmas concert. Just because you add a banjo and a...continued

Don't expect this to be a bluegrass event. It is a choir event with very minor participation from the bluegrass band!

I was under the impression that the Bluegrass Band advertised 'Monroe Crossing' would be performing along with a choir at Carnegie Hall. I didn't realize that the choir would do ALL the songs, and Monroe Crossing was just a 'special guest' merely...continued

Love Bluegrass music and it was an interesting twist to add a classical choir and a mass.
