Art Hounds: Heaven, Henry Cowell, and Bach’s B-Minor Mass on the big screen
Patricia Mitchell, president and CEO of the Ordway Center for Performing Arts in St. Paul, is already a big fan of one of Bach’s masterpieces, “Mass in B Minor.” Patricia says German filmmaker Bastian Cleve and VocalEssence will make the work a feast for the eyes and ears in “The Sound of Eternity.” VocalEssence will perform the piece while Cleve’s 27 short dialogue-free films inspired by the Mass are shown on the big screen. “The Sound of Eternity” will be performed Friday and Saturday at 8pm at St. Olaf Catholic Church in Minneapolis.
