March 29 and 30

Mass in B Minor, BWV 232

The Mass in B Minor is Bach’s last great masterwork, completed in 1749, the year before his death. Much of the music was composed earlier in Bach’s lifetime, but here he assembles it into a unified and deeply moving statement of faith, a summation of a life’s work dedicated to the glory of God. The Bach Cantata Vespers Chorus and Orchestra will be joined by singers from Chicago Choral Artists to present this magnificent music in two complete performances.

Presented in concert with intermission.
Admission is free; a free-will offering will be received.

Saturday, March 29, 7:00 p.m. (Please note the correct start time, which was incorrectly listed in previous publications.)
Sunday, March 30, 4:00 p.m. 
(also streamed)

Pre-concert lecture by Carl Grapentine in the Sanctuary one hour prior to each performance.
