Bernstein creates a Mass of interest


Email received - Bob: I've read your postings regarding Bernstein's Mass and thought this might interest you. NYC students are writing their own choral anthems inspired by Mass and will be performing them (with select excerpts from Mass) at a Carnegie Hall concert in October. Additionally, later that month, "[a] massive choir of five hundred young people performs the Bernstein Mass with Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony at the United Palace Theater." I think Bernstein would approve! Sorry if this is old news. Keep up the good work. Kind regards, Tim

My photo shows Lennie with Robert Corff in rehearsal for Mass. And here is another reader saying Mass is not a dishonest piece.
