VAE's 15th Birthday Concert: J. S. Bach: Mass in B Minor, with Orchestra Pro Cantores and soloists, Rodney Wynkoop, conductor
"To celebrate its 15th birthday, VAE (founded in 1996) will diverge from its usual summer concert format of shorter works and present the beloved, incomparable Mass in B Minor of J. S. Bach. Written near the end of his life and yet comprised in part of reworked Bach works from more than 20 years earlier, the Mass represents a culmination of Bach's incredible contrapuntal skill and evocative treatment of the timeless text of the Mass. This performance will give listeners a chance to hear a number of the excellent singers in VAE sing the solo movements. We hope that you will come and enjoy this great music!"
