Vivaldi’s “Gloria” is one of the world’s most beloved musical treasures, often sung with mixed chorus. Concord Women’s Chorus offers a special view of Vivaldi’s world, as composer for the Ospedale della Pietà – a convent, orphanage, and music school for foundling girls in early 18th century Venice. Accompanied by strings, organ, oboe, and soloists, hear the shimmer, radiance, and vitality that women’s voices bring to Vivaldi’s signature work. The program includes a stunning and rhythmic “Festival Gloria” from composer Craig Courtney, and Ola Gjeilo’s collection of luminous works for women’s voices, piano, and string quartet.
