  • Recital No. 1: MASS

Through recontextualized Bach arias, Caroline Shaw’s Mass, and religious ritual, Tines invites listeners to explore human existence and spirituality in his Mass No. 1. Woven into this performance are arrangements of spirituals by Tyshawn Sorey, Moses Hogan, and Margaret Bonds, as well as Julius Eastman’s powerful a cappella work, Prelude to The Holy Presence of Joan d’Arc. 

Praised in The New Yorker, critic Alex Ross commends The Mass’ ability to "traverse multiple centuries and worlds" while grounding audiences with "the taut resonance of one voice: a timbre at once grand and fraught, potent and vulnerable."

Tickets are free, but reservations are required.

Museum closes at 6pm, but concertgoers get an hour of exclusive time prior to the concert to peruse the museum's two new exhibits that just opened. The two new exhibits are: Daniel Arsham's Wherever You Go, There You Are and "13 Women" Variation II.

The livestream for this performance has ended. Please enjoy a previous recording of this program at the Ojai Music Festival on June 10, 2022.
