Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610
April 25 @ 8:00 pm
Outstanding choral conductor Andrew Megill will direct 15 renowned instruments specialists and 10 internationally acclaimed vocal soloists hailing from throughout the US. Pre-concert lecture begins at 7:15 pm.
“Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 is astonishing for the grandeur of its conception and the opulence of its sound … combining the grandest of public music with the most intimate of solo songs; no other such work calls for the many colorful obbligato instruments and uses them in such a daringly modern, virtuosic way.”
– Martin Pearlman, Boston Baroque
