Experience the splendor of Baroque Venice with two brilliant works by Antonio Vivaldi, his ever-popular Gloria and the rarely performed Dixit Dominus (“Di Praga”), and exquisite motets by Claudio Monteverdi, whose noble style paved the way for the Baroque era.
Kevin Leong conducts the 75-voice Masterworks Chorale and a professional Baroque orchestra on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at 8:00 PM at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre (45 Quincy Street) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The concert features a superb trio of soloists—sopranos Teresa Wakim and Sarah Yanovitch and mezzo-soprano Julia Soojin Cavallaro—and a period orchestra of some of Boston’s best Baroque instrumentalists.
