Mission Santa Clara de Asís
Concert Sponsor: John Murden
Experience the sublime Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 in the historic Mission Santa Clara de Asís.
Schola Cantorum commemorates the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi with its ﬁrst performance of Vespers of 1610. Rarely performed, this work is profound both in its intimacy and grandeur, as well as sacredness and sensuality. Monteverdi offers up varying textures and sonorities in brilliant instrumental writing, magniﬁcent choruses, and emotional solo arias and duets. Maestro Wait has chosen the Mission Santa Clara de Asís for its acoustics, which are perfectly suited for this work.
Schola Cantorum welcomes The Whole Noyse brass ensemble and soloists Angelique Zuluaga, soprano; David Kurtenbach, tenor; Andrew Metzger, tenor; and Daniel Borup, baritone to accompany this amazing piece.
