Revered guitarist and beloved Pittsburgh icon Joe Negri returns to the Music Hall on October 7 to perform his Mass of Hope featuring the Bach Choir under the direction of Thomas Douglas.
Now in his 10th decade, Negri began developing his Mass in the mid-1960’s, incorporating typical jazz styles with harmonies and syncopations, bringing the classic liturgy to life. In a Post-Gazette interview, Negri commented, “If you like popular music or jazz, I think you will get a lot out of it…Parts of it can even get you off your feet a little bit and get you clapping your hands.”
Joe Negri’s Mass of Hope benefits the campaign to restore and revitalize the historic landmark Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall.
Tickets include an elegant reception throughout the Library & Music Hall following the performance.
