Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra
As part of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir's annual "Sacred Masterworks" performance series, this melding of vibrant voices and delicately vibrating strings will pay tribute to one of J.S. Bach's greatest achievements. Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, tenor Brian Stucki, and bass-baritone Derrick Parker will combine throaty forces to ring out Bach's epic mass, which has been likened to other famous artists' opuses including Michelangelo's fresco at the Sistine Chapel and da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The symphony orchestra's mix of harmonious winds, quivering strings, and rhythmically tapped percussion instruments will serve as a sonorous backdrop to resonant vocals as they herald the iconic work to waiting audience eardrums in a 2-hour show with a 20-minute intermission.
