Remember Leonard Bernstein's "Mass" at the Long Center for the Performing Arts this summer?

It was a miracle of the modern age that conductor Peter Bay and producers led by Mela Sarajane Dailey brought off the rare production of the 1971 piece with full settings and costumes and more than 300 performers. They didn't just stage it, they made it the sensation of the Austin performing arts season.

Along they way, they coaxed more than a dozen arts groups to collaborate. In fact, backers are calling it the "largest arts collaboration in the city's history."

It was also one of the nicest gifts ever from one spouse to another, since Dailey wanted to assure that her husband, Bay, could conduct the revolutionary show he first saw in 1971.

Well much to everyone's surprise, "Mass" made money.

The producing group, Merick Strategies, wanted to thank the key groups that helped out with the Bernstein100 celebration. So they are distributing the "profits" of $116,000 among them.
