Resonance Works’ to Perform Bach’s Mass in B Minor

By Francisco Salazar

Resonance Works’ tenth anniversary season will continue with Bach’s Mass in B Minor.

The work will be performed by sopranos Katy Shackleton Williams, Charlene Canty, Amelia D’Arcy, and Lara Lynn McGill, mezzo-sopranos Timothi Williams and Thespina Christulides, tenor Javier Abreu, and bass-baritone Matthew Scollin.

In a statement, Maria Sensi Sellner, Resonance Works’ Artistic and General Director said, “Although the complete Mass was never performed during Bach’s lifetime, it embodies his incredible skill as a composer and incorporates music he created throughout his career. With musical motives imbued with specific meaning and elaborately layered voices, the Mass brings the audience through a deeply spiritual exploration that ranges from quiet meditation to exhilarating joy. Hearing the B Minor Mass performed live is a rare and unforgettable experience.”

The concert will be performed on April 28, 29, and 30, 2023 at the Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church, Coraopolis United Methodist Church, and Heinz Memorial Chapel.
