Bach Against the Storm

Trinity Wall Street presents free concert for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Bach Against the Storm

Bach's B Minor Mass will be performed at Trinity Church in a concert for hurricane relief.

This just in: on Saturday night at 7:30pm, Trinity Church and the Trinity Choir will present a free performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B Minor as part of an effort to raise funding to relieve the suffering of victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Attendees at this concert are encouraged to donate to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, a non-profit which will in turn disperse funding to relief organizations helping the 40,000 New Yorkers left homeless by the storm.
Trinity's rector, Dr. James Cooper had the following comment: "“Trinity Church has served New Yorkers in need for more than three centuries. There is no greater honor or privilege than to stand with our neighbors in this great city and to say, ‘we are here to help.’ I invite all to this concert to be uplifted by the music and by the spirit of your giving.”
The concert features the Choir of Trinity Wall Street and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra under the baton of Julian Wachner. The Mass in B Minor is one of Bach's best known major choral pieces, a rock-solid setting of the Catholic Mass that encourages reflection and devotion through its rigorous mathematical construction and moving, human expression of faith.
Beyond contributing at this free concert, there are four easy ways to donate:
1. Online – visit www.nyc.gov/fund.
2. Mail – checks can be made payable to Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, with “hurricane relief” in the memo line, and sent to:
Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, 253 Broadway, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10007.  3. Call – donations can be made over the phone at 212-788-7794.
4. Text – text NYCFUND to 50555 to donate $10 to the Mayor’s Fund to support hurricane relief. (Message and data rates may apply.)
100 percent of donations are being dispersed to relief efforts and organizations to meet the short- and long-term needs of New York City and its residents. This includes immediate aid such as the supply and transport of water, food, toiletries, baby supplies, blankets and cleaning materials to distribution sites, as well as longer term restoration and recovery efforts.
To volunteer or for in-kind donations, visit www.nycservice.org.
