Monteverdi Vespers 1610

Saturday, March 18, 2017 – 7:00pm
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.
