The Saint Louis Chamber Chorus: We Are The Music Makers – music of Monteverdi, Vivaldi and Melissa Dunphy
A joyous return to live performance is heralded by a perennial favorite – the Gloria (RV 589) of Antonio Vivaldi, complemented by motets from his Venetian precursor Claudio Monteverdi. This baroque repertoire contrasts with a new commission from Melissa Dunphy, who will fly here for the premiere.
In this season, Pastime with Good Company, collaboration underpins every performance. We have invited some of St. Louis’s finest instrumentalists – on strings and keyboards – to present with us canonical choral works that have typically been outside our repertoire. We celebrate towering figures of classical music, while continuing our commitment to women composers and new works. And we go back 'on the road' to explore some of St. Louis's best acoustics in six spectacular venues.
The Saint Louis Chamber Chorus presents the finest a cappella choral works in the region's most distinctive buildings, seeking to entertain, educate, and inspire.
