For the first performance of the 2019 Scholars Baroque Aotearoa concert season, the Scholars are joined by Opus Chamber Orchestra - a chamber orchestra of the beloved Opus!
Scholars Baroque Aotearoa perform four anthems by Purcell. Not your typical anthems, these anthems are feature interludes for string orchestra as well as solos, duets, trios and quartets interspersed with sections sung by the whole choir. Also on the programme is the eternal favourite, Gloria, by Antonio Vivaldi, with all its flair and excitement of the high Italian baroque style.
Largely remembered as an orchestral writer, Vivaldi's choral works are all but forgotten except for the Gloria which is performed by choirs the world over year after year. It has never lost its lustre.
Doors open 30mins before start time.
Adult: $35 (includes one child ticket)
Child: $20 (secondary students and younger)
