Our next concert series features the Petite messe solennelle by Gioachino Rossini. We will perform it on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22, 2018 with the locations and soloists to be announced shortly.
This is one of the most remarkable compositions of Rossini's whole career, demonstrating his ability to write beautiful melodies (often frankly operatic in character) with an unfailing sense of color and drama, and great contrapuntal skill. The piece is written for choir and soloists with accompaniment of two pianos and harmonium.
Make plans now to hear this rarely-performed piece.
