Apple MainStage 3.4.4 Update
Apple released MainStage version 3.4.4 (for macOS 10.12 or later, 64-bit processor). The app store page only says "This update contains stability improvements and bug fixes", but the release notes have more details:
"New in MainStage 3.4.4
    Stability & Reliability
  • MainStage no longer quits unexpectedly: 
    • When sending a damaged MIDI file to an external device.
    • Sometimes when changing patches.
    • When Mute Channels is selected in the Feedback Detection dialog.
  • MainStage no longer sometimes hangs when opening a concert if external MIDI devices are connected.
  • Edits made to Impulse Response Utility projects on macOS Catalina no longer cause the project to be unexpectedly truncated.
  • Mappings made to aliases are now maintained when a concert is saved.
    Key Commands
  • Key commands that include a modifier, shift and a letter key now work properly.
  • MainStage key commands no longer override Finder key commands when the File Selector is open.
  • Transmitting standard MIDI files on patch change now reliably sends program change messages.
  • The Vintage Organ now reliably outputs audio after a MIDI Reset is triggered in MainStage.
