Providence Singers Present Christine Noel Directing Three Masterworks by Joseph Haydn & Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
The Providence Singers will present three substantive pieces of the classical era, with a chamber orchestra and soloists. Joseph Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis (mass for a time of high anxiety), later known as the “Nelson Mass,” is one of the great compositions he wrote late in life. Wolfang Amadeus Mozart’s Vesperae Solennes de Confessore, on the other hand, was a much more youthful work. Mozart was 24 when he wrote it and had returned to Salzburg after a disappointing effort to establish himself in Paris. The Ave Verum Corpus, a great favorite in the choral canon, was written in 1791, the last year of Mozart’s life.
Joining the Providence Singers are soloists soprano Teresa Wakim, mezzo-soprano Emily Marvosh, tenor Greg Zavracky, & baritone Nicholas R. Laroche. Immediately following the performance, the Singers will host a reception in the lower level of the Cathedral. All audience members are invited to attend and greet the performers and conductor.
Tickets $36 general admission, $15 students
