Gloria! Santa Clara
Alumni chorus Ragazzi Continuo, along with Ragazzi’s most accomplished boys and young men, present excerpts from Glorias by classical greats Josef Haydn and Antonio Vivaldi. Music by J.S. Bach and his predecessor, Heinrich Schütz, will set the stage for a piece by contemporary choral composer Eric Whitacre. In preparation for Ragazzi’s tour to the Baltics, Russian songs by Rachmaninoff and Chesnokov will be presented, along with some lively folk tunes. Some modern music from Latvian and Estonian composers will also be sung. A small orchestral group will accompany the singers.
Sung by Avanti, Concert Group, Choral Scholars and Ragazzi Continuo
