Leonard Bernstein’s Mass opened the Kennedy Center in 1971, and since that time has been a lightening rod for conversations on what Bernstein himself called, "the crisis of our century, a crisis of faith.” In preparation for performances of Mass at the Paramount on Oct. 13th & 14th, join UVA conductor and Bernstein scholar Michael Slon, along with lead soloist Kevin Vortmann (who has recorded the work with the Philadelphia Orchestra) for a lecture and panel discussion on the this extraordinary and transformative work.

Friday, October 12th - 3:30 pm in the UVa Minor Hall Auditorium
