COMING IN MAY!
Perhaps the greatest choral work ever written, J.S. Bach‘s masterwork offers a journey of heart and soul: dazzling, tender, and powerful. Although universally recognized as a pinnacle of human creativity, at its core the Mass in B-Minor is a personal expression of spiritual devotion that transcends religious boundaries.
