Great Masters Series - "Dixit Dominus"

Vivaldi was ordained in 1703, but left the priesthood soon after due to health complications. His reputation began with trios sonatas, violin sonatas and L’estro armonico, his first publications. Vivaldi also had a great interest in vocal music, including sacred works written for his pupils and operas. Known as the Venetian composer, Antonio Vivaldi died in Vienna in July of 1741.

Cantemus will perform a major selection of Vivaldi’s sacred music, Dixit Dominus, conducted by Darrel Rowader. Founded in 1988, Cantemus the 20-singer chamber choir performs a repertoire which spans from medieval to contemporary works, including Monteverdi, Bach, Mozart, Schubertm, Poulenc and of course Vivaldi. In 1996, the group presented the Arizona premiere of William Albright’s concert length work, “A Song to Davis.” Conductor/tenor Darrell Rowader is an internationally known concert, oratorio and operatic soloist. This is his second season as Cantemus’ artistic director.

These events are open to the public and free of charge.
