JUNEAU - The Juneau Lyric Opera presents its eighth Mid-Summer Vocal Festival performance on Saturday, Aug. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Chapel by the Lake.
The performance will feature Mozart's Grand Mass in C minor, K. 427 under the direction of Dr. Byron McGilvray. Sue Kazama will be the accompanist and Bruce Simonson the assistant conductor.
The C Minor Mass is widely regarded as Mozart's most ambitious and elaborate choral masterpiece. Mozart composed the Mass from the heart to fulfill a prenuptial vow. To him it was entirely personal. Why he left it unfinished is a mystery.
