Following two triumphant sold-out performances of Handel's "Messiah" in December 2011 and an upcoming world premiere performance of "The Ascension" on Friday, March 2, Master Singers will voice Franz Schubert's "Mass in G" this spring. Composed in less than a week during March of 1815, this is the best known of the three shorter mass compositions Schubert penned between his more elaborate first and fifth masses.
Master Singers will perform the piece during a May 2012 concert in the acoustically perfect Frances Bedford Concert Hall of The Rita.For more information, call Dr. Kinchen at (262) 595-2111.
