The Mass in C Major Coronation Mass, composed in 1779, is one of the most popular of Mozart’s 17 settings of the Latin Mass texts. It most likely premiered on Easter Sunday in 1779 in Salzburg Cathedral. The soloists for this marvelous work will be soprano Mary Sullivan, mezzo-soprano Jenna Guiggey, tenor David Myers-Wakeman, and bass-baritone John David Adams.

As a special treat, David Myers-Wakeman will sing two arrangements of hits from The Platters, including Smoke Gets In Your Eyes and The Great Pretender. Several shorter pieces will also be featured on the program, including arrangements of Blue Skies, In The Still Of The Night, It Don’t Mean A Thing, Mister Sandman, Over the Rainbow, and more.

Tickets are $25 and are available online at or at Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop in Boothbay Harbor. They may also be purchased at the door starting 30 minutes prior to each performance.
