The Red Priest of Venice

The Red Priest of Venice

The Concert Singers of Cary Symphonic & Chamber Choirs, with the Mallarmé Chamber Players and guest conductor Dr. Nathan Leaf.

Saturday, March 25th, at 7:30 PM, St. Francis United Methodist Church (2965 Kildaire Farm Road, Cary)

Join us for an evening of music by Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi as well as women composers from the Baroque.

Vivaldi was initially ordained as a priest, and known locally as “the Red Priest” because of his red hair.  His clergy career was short-lived, as Vivaldi followed his passion for music and become one of the greatest Baroque composers. His Dixit Dominus is a setting of Psalm 109 that celebrates the promised triumph of good over evil. It rivals Vivaldi’s much-loved Gloria for exuberance and splendor.
