Rare Puccini

Posted on May 11, 2012 by Sonoma Valley Sun

Guest artists Diego Garcia (pictured) and John Griffin join the Sonoma Valley Chorale for two performances of Puccini’s oratorio “Messa di Gloria” this weekend. Puccini is well known for his operas, but this seldom-heard work is a Mass composed for orchestra and four-part choir with tenor, bass and baritone soloists.

Listen carefully for overtones of opera and familiar themes, advises conductor David Irvine, along with passionate and beautiful harmonies. Friday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 12, at 2 p.m. $10-$20. Veterans Memorial Building, 126 First St. W. 935.1576.
