Peter Bay (MM ’80, Conducting) has organized and will conduct a production of Bernstein’s MASS: A Theatre Piece for Singers, Players and Dancers. The production, in his home of Austin, Texas, will include 300 cast and crew members, the involvement of all of the major performing arts organizations in Austin, and an opening night Gala event featuring the families of Leonard Bernstein and John F. Kennedy. This collaboration of all the major performing arts organizations in Austin is unprecedented. A project of this magnitude has been a lifelong dream of Bay, and comes at a particularly poignant time, the 100th birthday of Bernstein. This production is presented as a part of Bernstein100Austin, and will take place on June 29 and 30 at the Long Center in Austin.
