Columbia Pro Cantare: Rossini, Petite Messe Solennelle

Columbia Pro Cantare opens its 37th season with Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle. An operatic composer of timeless renown, Gioachino Rossini also composed sacred music, chamber music, songs, and instrumental and piano works. Rossini referred to Petite Messe Solennelle as the last of his “peches de vieillesse” (sins of old age). First performed in 1864 in a private chapel of a friend of the composer in Passy, France, Petite Messe is characterized by contrapuntal writing, elaborate chromatics and harmonic audacity. The Columbia Pro Cantare chorus under the direction of Frances Motyca Dawson will be joined by Jennifer Holbrook, soprano, Leah Serr, mezzo, John Noh, tenor, Steven Eddy, baritone, and Alison Gatwood, piano, Erik Apland, piano, and Donald Fries, harmonium.

There will be a pre-concert lecture by musicologist Barbara Renton, Ph.D., at 7 pm, and a post-concert reception.

Tickets are $23, $20 (students and sr. citizens) in advance; $2 more at the door. To order tickets, visit www.procantare.org, or call 410.799.9321 or 301. 854.0107.
