Jamie Bernstein, Leonard Bernstein’s daughter, will moderate the panel about the history and impact of Bernstein’s 1971 work; panelists will include MASS lyricist Stephen Schwartz; conductors Marin Alsop, John Mauceri, and Wayne Marshall, all of whom have frequently led performances of the work; baritone Paulo Szot, who performed as the Celebrant in the recent Ravinia Festival production; baritone Douglas Webster, who has been in more than 20 productions of MASS; and Harvard University professor of music Carol Oja.
