The Mid-Columbia Mastersingers return to the B Reactor National Historic Landmark for a weekend of concerts commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Manhattan Project. The performances will take place Friday and Saturday, September 28 and 29 (5:30pm bus departure), and Sunday, September 30 (4:30pm bus departure).
The concert program will explore aspects of why the U.S. chose to join World War II, framed by a celebration of our democratic system of government. Music will include Stravinsky’s arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner, the opening chorus of John Adams’ opera Doctor Atomic, Francis Poulenc’s Un Soir de Neige, Benjamin Britten’s Holy Sonnets of John Donne featuring tenor soloist Jason Wickson, Ligeti’s Lux Aeterna from Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, and more.
The Friday and Sunday performances ($100) include dinner and are for guests 21 years of age and older. The Saturday performance ($75) includes heavy appetizers. There is an optional add on fee for beer/wine service on Friday and Sunday. Catering will be provided by Ethos Bakery & Cafe. All three performances will include bus transportation to the reactor site. Visit www.MCMastersingers.org to order tickets. Tickets must be purchased in advance and none will be sold at the door. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to support the Hanford Unit of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
