J. S. Bach:
Mass in b minor
Saturday, April 13 (8pm)
Sunday, April 14 (3pm)
St. John the Apostle
Johann Sebastian Bach’s monumental Mass in b minor is among the greatest artistic creations of Western music. Vast in concept, profound in spiritual depth, and remarkable for the diversity and intricacy of its musical language and architecture, the work inspires musicians and listeners alike.
As part of its ongoing commitment to cultivating artistic partnerships among regional arts organizations, Bloomington Chamber Singers has engaged the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra for this production. A professional ensemble founded in 1999, the orchestra has rapidly become one of the region’s most respected interpreters of seventeenth and eighteenth century music. We look forward to performing this magnificent music with instruments and timbres that reflect Bach’s time and taste, and in collaboration with musicians who are specialists in the performance practices of this period. The two-hour work is scored for eight-part chorus and soloists, strings, winds, and brass. Its compositional techniques represent the mature genius of Bach, and are a compendium of his compositional styles.
BCS Artistic Director Gerald Sousa, now in his twenty-seventh season with the sixty-voice ensemble, will conduct. Two performances will be offered: 8pm Saturday evening, April 13th, and 3pm the next day, Sunday, April 14th at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church. Tickets are $25 (adult) and $15 (students) and are available now from any BCS member and the Buskirk-Chumley Theater box office.
