The Chesapeake Choral Arts Society presents a Glorious Concert. The concert will feature different settings of the Gloria. Arnold Freed's Gloria is a very powerful modern work performed with brass ensemble and timpani. The Haydn Gloria in Excelsis Deo is a very traditional setting of the work. Dufay's work was written in the 1400's, and the medieval tone is haunting and more somber than the other two settings.
A highlight will be the premiere performance of The “Gloria” Variations by W.G. Pete Stokes which will feature our Director Emeritus, Michael Santana, as a soloist.
Each work in the concert exemplifies "Glory to God in the Highest." And how do you end a concert of "Glorias"? With Antonio Vivaldi's Gloria, of course! Soloists Amy Statz Dolan and Hannah Baslee will be returning for this eternal work.
Amy Statz Dolan (Soprano) is a graduate of Western Michigan University and the University of South Carolina and furthered her opera training at the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria. Amy was a US Air Force “Singing Sergeant” for 12 years.
Mezzo-soprano Hannah Baslee is a graduate of Concordia University Texas (CTX), where she received a B.A. in vocal performance and eared her M.M. in Vocal Performance at the University of Texas, El Paso.
What a "Glorious" way to move into the Easter Season!
There will be two performances of the Glorious concert on April 13th and April 14th. Both performances will be at St. Joseph Catholic Parish Center located at 4590 St. Joseph’s Rd., Pomfret, MD.
