Where: The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist

The Cathedral Choir and Chamber Orchestra perform Antonio Vivaldi’s famous Gloria and Franz Schubert’s dramatic Mass in G for a special Mother’s Day choral treat. Vivaldi’s work, which was composed in 1715 for the choir of the Ospedale della Pietà, expresses the exuberance of the traditional Gloria text, while offering great opportunities to hear our Cathedral soloists. Written exactly 100 years later, Schubert’s Mass is characterized by soaring lyricism and unconventional harmonic turns.
