Bernstein Mass with the CSO!

Buy your tickets early for this one. The Bernstein Mass will be one of the largest undertakings in CSO history. Atlas Voices, as always, will be at the heart of the mighty CSO Chorus. This full-length symphonic cantata features 2 orchestras, 4 choirs, and more than 20 soloists. Merging contemporary symphonic styles with traditional musical theatre, this work transcends our expectation of a symphony concert. It is quintessential Bernstein on the 50th anniversary of its premiere at the opening of the Kennedy Centre in Washington D.C. in 1971.
