March 18, 2017 at Mission Church – Santa Clara University in Santa Clara.
Schola Cantorum commemorates the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi with its ﬁrst performance of Vespers of 1610. Rarely performed, this work is profound both in its intimacy and grandeur, as well as sacredness and sensuality. Monteverdi offers up varying textures and sonorities in brilliant instrumental writing, magniﬁcent choruses, and emotional solo arias and duets. Maestro Wait has chosen the Mission Santa Clara de Asís for its acoustics, which are perfectly suited for this work.
Schola Cantorum welcomes The Whole Noyse brass ensemble and soloists Angelique Zuluaga, soprano; David Kurtenbach, tenor; Andrew Metzger, tenor; and Daniel Borup, baritone to accompany this amazing piece.
