Tickets will also be available at the door


As part of its Bach+ Series at historic St. Anne’s Church, Live Arts Maryland presents J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor.  The Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra will perform the work under the direction of J. Ernest Green.  Organist and Bach expert Larry Molinaro will also perform.

One of the crowing achievements in all of Western Civilization, Bach’s Mass in B Minor is full of glorious music and musical puzzles that inspire and astonish both performers and listeners alike to this day!  It really is as one performer described it – the Mount Everest of music.
