Baltimore Symphony Orchestra SELLS OUT Carnegie Hall & the Kennedy Center with Leonard Bernstein's "Mass"
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra SELLS OUT Carnegie Hall & the Kennedy Center with Leonard Bernstein's "Mass"

This concert celebration was all a part of the Bernstein 'Mass' Project: A Choral Exploration", which included Marin Alsop leading the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Morgan State University Choir, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and Jubilant Sykes in the "Mass" at Carnegie Hall Friday, and the United Palace Theater in Washington Heights Saturday. The sold out Carnegie Concert was repeated in the Bronx/Harlem in the flashy United Palace Theater where 500 inner city kids joined the orchestras and the three choruses for the concert. The whole extravaganza was incredibly moving. The Morgan State University Marching Band added in for the Kennedy Center concerts and the Peabody Children's Chorus joined the concert in the place of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. This performance was also taken to the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Classical Movements is proud to have made the travel arrangements for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Morgan State University Choir for this concert tour.

Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times writes, "There is nothing like young performers to refresh older pieces. And the performance of Bernstein's 'Mass' that Marin Alsop conducted at this palatial former vaudeville house involved hundreds of young, inspired and inspiring performers. This was actually the second performance of 'Mass' in two days. As the major event in its contribution to the citywide celebration of the 90th anniversary of Bernstein's birth, Carnegie Hall sponsored the Bernstein 'Mass' Project. On Friday night Ms. Alsop conducted the work at Carnegie with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a dynamic roster of solo singers and two ensembles of gifted choristers: the Morgan State University Choir (Eric Conway, director) and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus (Dianne Berkun, director). The Morgan State University Choir is a stellar group from a nationally ranked university. They will be participating in the Ihlombe! South African Choral Festival in 2010.

"This is exactly what my father wanted," said Jamie Bernstein.
