Light Mass Concert

May 5, 2018
7:00 p.m.

Location: Sanctuary

Coordinator(s) / Contact(s):
Jared Daugherty - 7043661854

Join us on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Donations will be accepted.

This concert, conducted by Dr. Jared Daugherty, will feature the Sanctuary Choir, Kaitlyn Davros on piano, and a Jazz trio from University of Georgia.

In February our minister of music, Dr. Jared Daugherty, traveled to Vilnius, Lithuania to visit Vytautas Miškinis, the composer of Light Mass.

Light Mass was composed for the World Symposium on Choral Music, held in Denmark, in 2008. Miškinis started composing two years prior to this event, and, since he used jazz, rock, and gospel musical elements, he had to make sure it was his original work. What is most intriguing is that he lost the manuscript three times, and the last time, when he was sure it was gone, he found it under his bed. He continued working on it, and once it was complete, it was complete and never edited. The music is a result of influences from various cultures because “the sounds of world music influence you.” Read more about Dr. Daugherty's experience in Lithuania and insights from Vytautas Miškinis HERE. Come and hear this unique piece of music wherein the worlds of sacred music and jazz collide. The concert will be less than 45 minutes in length.
