About This Performance

Following last season’s astounding collaboration with the Dover Quartet, “charismatic, full-voiced” (New York Times) bass-baritone Davóne Tines returns to the Perelman Theater stage for his PCMS recital debut. In Recital #1: MASS, Tines “queers” the mass in the broad sense that he bends it to his own understanding, “giving Black people and queer people and anyone who has felt excluded by religion or classical music or America their say” (Classical Voice).

Recital #1: Mass
An exploration of the Mass woven through Western European, African American, and 21st Century traditions featuring works by JS Bach, Julius Eastman, Caroline Shaw, and Tyshawn Sorey, and spirituals by Moses Hogan and Margaret Bonds.
