Kantorei performance

I am pleased to announce that tomorrow, Friday, April 6, and Saturday, April 7, Westminster Kantorei and Fuma Sacra will be performing Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610. We will be in Princeton on Friday, and in Manhattan at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church on Saturday. Both concerts are at 8 pm - I encourage you to check out the Westminster website for further information.

This will be my last performance with Kantorei, since I'm graduating, and it will be pretty spectacular to boot. We have period instruments (think sackbutts, cornetti, theorbo) and the dress rehearsal today was very exciting. It's an effervescent piece, and there will be some pretty good performers involved, if I do say so myself! Please come if you can!

    It definitely was a wonderful performance. The Fuma Sacra soloists were amazing - such breath control and tuning! I also really enjoyed the sopranos when they sang "sancta Maria, ora pro nobis" (or something like that) 11 times IN TUNE as ONE voice. Difficult to do, for sure.

    I brought my hubby and his friend (who is a music lover . . . his father "jams" with Yo-Yo Ma!) and they both were very glad they came. :)
