The Kingston Road Village Concert Series will present the online version of Mass Hysterical, A Comedic Cantata on Dec. 15.
The performance will help raise funds for Kingston Road United Church’s Raise our Roof campaign.
Originally planned as a live performance at the church this month, Mass Hysterical will now be presented online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Comedian Colin Mochrie is the host of Mass Hysterical which is a collaboration between alumni of Toronto’s Second City and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO).
It’s billed as a “cheeky look” at the history of church music.
The production features Matthew Reid and Carly Heffernan (creators of the Second City Guide to the Symphony) and performances of music by a TSO chamber ensemble.
Composers featured include Bach, Handel and Mozart. Four Second City veterans will perform a variety of songs, dialogue and comedy as part of Mass Hysterical.
Soloists Russell Braun and Julia Dawson are joined by the Mass Hysterical Chorus in the production.
