Musical Mass


Byline: Stephanie K. Taylor, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Musical mass

Leonard Bernstein's "Mass" gives church service a 20th-century musical infusion. Filled with dancing and a gamut of lyrical styles from hymns, the blues, and marches to a little Broadway razzle dazzle the production explores the spiritual and political crises of the late 1960s. The Catholic University Symphony and choral ensembles perform "Mass" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, 620 Michigan Ave. NE. Tickets cost $20 to $50. 202/319-5416.

Divine dance

Brazilian dance company Grupo Corpo combines classical ballet moves, folk dance steps and social dances to bring respected choreographer's new work, "Santagustin," to life. The piece uses bitter-sweet humor to explore the tension between pleasures of the flesh and more spiritual desires. The group also performs their 1992 piece, "21." Check it out at 8 p.m. Wednesday at George Mason University Center for the Arts Concert Hall, Braddock and Chain Bridge roads, Fairfax. Tickets are $19 to $38. 703/218-6500.

Patriotic homage

Saturday provides the chance to pay homage to the United States while enjoying family entertainment at the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation's annual Blessing of the Fleet ceremony at the Navy Memorial. Vice Adm. David Brewer III speaks about the service of the Amphibious Fleet, while the U.S. Navy Country Current Bluegrass group and ceremonial band performs. Afterward, free navy bean soup will be served in the Naval Heritage Center. Check it out from noon to 2 p.m. at 701 Pennsylvania Ave., NW. 202/433-2525.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Stop by the Eisenhower Theater, F Street and New Hampshire Avenue NW.
