Orchestra Iowa Presents: Epic Bach: The B Minor Mass

BACHMass in B Minor

Johann Sebastian Bach’s music has inspired millions of listeners for centuries, and his Mass in B Minor, one of his final works, has become among the most revered choral works in the orchestral repertoire. Maestro Tim Hankewich and Orchestra Iowa bring together soloists from around the country and joins together with Choral Midwest, directed by Bradley Barrett, to offer a deeply moving performance that will not disappoint.

Soloists include soprano Mary Wilson (“a gift from the gods if I ever heard one” –San Francisco Classical Voice), soprano Kristin Hightower (Luther College adjunct faculty), mezzo-soprano Suzanne Lommler (Simpson College faculty), tenor Charles Blandy (“unfailingly, tirelessly lyrical” –Boston Globe), and bass Stephen Bryant (“deep, well-modulated sonority” –San Diego Story).
