Written for the choir of the Ospedale della Pieta in Venice, Vivaldi's Gloria has become his most famous choral work. The music is brilliantly joyous, balanced with moments of reflection and operatic drama.
MCB joins forces with the choir of St. George's, led by guest director Dr. Stanley Warren, to celebrate the end of our 10th Anniversary Season with this beautiful sacred work.
Guest concertmaster Stephen Redfield leads the first half of the program, with Italian music for strings by Corelli, Legrenzi, and Vivaldi. Come enjoy this free concert to mark 10 years of early music performance in Nashville.
