Please join us for our last concert of the 2016-17 season, as we perform baroque masterpieces by Antonio Vivaldi.
MCS chorus, guest soloists, and chamber orchestra present an evening of glorious 18th century music, including Vivaldi's seldom-performed Dixit Dominus, the Kyrie in G minor, the motet Nulla in mundo pax sincera, and the famous Gloria, described as “one of sacred music’s most uplifting choral works!”
Artistic Director, Mervin William Fick, enhances the program with engaging and informative comments illustrating the social and historical context in which these works were composed and performed.
