Enter to win tickets to Early Music Vancouver’s beloved annual Festive Cantatas: Vivaldi’s Gloria and Magnificat on December 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
Enjoy Vivaldi's sacred vocal works as they were originally heard: performed entirely by women. Many of Vivaldi’s iconic masterpieces, now sung by mixed voice choirs, were written for an all-female ensemble. EMV will bring together many of the West Coast’s leading female instrumentalists specializing in baroque music on period instruments to share these well known works.
For much of his career, Antonio Lucio Vivaldi was a violin teacher and the musical director of L’Ospedale della Pietà, an orphanage for girls in Venice. Many of his best-known choral works, like Gloria and Magnificat, were composed for the female students who lived there.
The concert will feature internationally acclaimed and fiery music director, Monica Huggett, who will lead the all-female ensemble from the violin, and refresh these beloved classics by revisiting their roots.
Featuring three of Vivaldi’s most loved and often performed choral works - Laetatus Sum, Magnificat, and Gloria – this new and thrilling take on Vivaldi promises to evoke the joy of the holiday season!
Two tickets to Early Music Vancouver’s presentation of Festive Cantatas: Vivaldi’s Gloria and Magnificat December 23, 7:30 p.m. performance at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts ($100 Value).
Non-transferable. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
