Our 48th season opens with a universally loved choral-orchestral work: Vivaldi’s Gloria in D major, RV 589. Our choir and three guest soloists will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra. British composer Bob Chilcott has written a very entertaining setting of the cumulative carol The Twelve Days of Christmas, with clever musical twists and turns in various styles. We will perform it with piano duet and percussion along with other seasonal music.
