Jason Mraz and Raining Jane In All Five Boroughs

One of the world’s hardest working and most beloved artists, Jason Mraz’s journey has propelled him from the San Diego coffee house scene to arenas, amphitheatres, and stadiums all over the world.

The Atlantic recording artist is set for a whirlwind of activity this year including a North American Tour celebrating his just-released new album "YES!" which finds Mraz collaborating on record and in concert with his longtime friends, Raining Jane.
Moreover, the San Diego-based troubadour has proven a truly diverse creative presence.

His impassioned social activism and philanthropic efforts span wide-ranging environmental advocacy and ardent support for LGBT equality. Though it all, Jason Mraz continually confirms and celebrates music’s myriad forms and miraculous power, inspiring and delighting his countless fans around the world he calls home.

Leonard Bernstein's Mass

Leonard Bernstein’s MASS
Presented by the Aaron Copland School of Music
Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 8:00 PM and
Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 3:00 PM
Colden Auditorium
Tickets: $15 – $25

 

Leonard Bernstein’s Mass: A Theatre Piece for Singers, Players and Dancers is the composer’s most ambitious work. Commissioned to create a stage production to inaugurate the opera house at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., Bernstein turned to the Roman Catholic mass as a structure to investigate issues of faith and doubt, and of the political and social upheavals of the era of the late ’60s and early ’70s.

 

MASS is an enormous piece. It calls for a large pit orchestra, two choruses plus a boy’s choir, a Broadway-sized cast (with ballet company), marching band and a rock band. It may seem ironic that such multitudes are marshaled for a work that celebrates a man’s “Simple Song”: his love and faith in God. But in the end, that simplicity is shown to be all the more powerful because of it.
