St. Augustine Community Chorus Annual Masterworks performance
ST. AUGUSTINE – The St. Augustine Community Chorus, under the direction of Michael Sanflippo, will present its celebrated Masterworks concert featuring “Two Glorias: Vivaldi and Poulenc.” This program features Shannon McKay, organ, chamber orchestra, and soloists Hannah J Mazur, soprano, and Regina Torres, mezzo-soprano.
The soaring, soul stirring majesty of these works are perfectly suited to the beautiful and historical Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine where the chorus will perform on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14th at 2:00 p.m. Vivaldi’s Gloria, written in the early 18th century, contrasts greatly with Poulenc’s setting, which premiered some 250 years later in 1961. Listeners will discover both abundant contrast as well as some commonalities in these two choral masterworks which are dynamic standards in the choral repertoire. This premier concert is a culminating event of St. Augustine’s Romanza Festivale of the Arts.
Concert tickets are $15 for adults in advance and $20 at the door, children 12 & under, students & military with ID are $5 in advance and at the door. More info at www.staugustinecommunitychorus.org.
