Inspired by Bernstein’s MASS, the Mann, along with its collaborative artistic partner, NEWorks Productions, will draw together a collective of Philadelphia-based composers, musicians and directors from Philadelphia’s rich African American church community to present a community Mass that explores the relevance of faith in our times. Conceived and artistically directed by Nolan Williams, Jr., the Bernstein-inspired compositions of Evelyn Simpson-Curenton, Dr. Rollo Dilworth, Ruth Naomi Floyd, and Dr. Jay Fluellen will be presented as a full concert at Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church. The concert will be anchored by the Philadelphia Community Mass Choir, a collective of singers representing diverse communities in and around Philadelphia. The performance will be punctuated by spoken libretto excerpts from Bernstein’s MASS and delivered by two speakers: a celebrant and a skeptic.
