On Thursday, July 26 at 7:30 p.m., The Masterworks Choir and Orchestra will present “Bach: Mass in A Major” at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, 8th Street and Central Avenue, Ocean City.
The choir will be accompanied by Scott Breiner – Organist, and a chamber orchestra. Featured soloists will include Nancy Fox – Soprano, Robert Laird – Tenor, Florence Moyer – Alto and Robert Snodgrass – Baritone. John Gregory Bate is the Musical Director and Conductor.
This Mass in A Major is two movements long and is accompanied by a string quartet, two flutes and organ. It was composed from movements of other Bach works. The parody process or “borrowing” music from other works was very popular during Bach’s time.

A freewill offering will be received.
Parking is available on Central Avenue in the lot next to the church. There is also a handicapped accessible lot behind the church on Wesley Avenue between 7th and 8th streets.
