Bernstein’s Mass @ SJSU: 

Leonard Bernstein’s MASS tells the story of a community experiencing a crisis of faith. The MASS seeks answers to what happens when our systems fail us, from our religious institutions, to our leaders in government, to our belief in ourselves. Equal parts rock concert, story-telling theater, and modern symphony, the MASS creates an experience that defies categorization. The SJSU School of Music and Dance production brings together over two hundred musicians and dancers to ask these questions, presenting a unique and extraordinary production at the Hammer Theatre.
