Baroque to Bluegrass: PMAZ’s final concert of the season includes Come Away to the Skies: A High Lonesome Mass written by Tim Sharp and performed by PMAZ in their 2017 performance at Carnegie Hall. Accompanied by a spirited live bluegrass band, this piece is a unique combination incorporating the movements of a traditional mass, based on American folk songs, with a bluegrass flavor. The second half of the program will feature small instrumental and vocal ensembles from the Chorale and Orchestra with young guest artists as featured soloists, performing music from the Baroque period to present day.
