Ensemble Monterey 11/10
November 10 @ 7:00 pm
Ensemble Monterey presents Songs for Winter at Peace United Church. “We are delighted to have Burr Phillips join us as the baritone soloist in Samuel Barber’s masterpiece, Dover Beach. Based on the 1851 poem by Mathew Arnold, Samuel Barber’s setting for voice and string quartet evokes a classical, pastoral setting which many claim was a work to celebrate his own honeymoon. Rieti’s Partita is a 20th Century bravura display for solo harpsichord, once again accompanied by Ensemble Monterey. Our soloist for the partita is audience favorite Leah Zumberge. The acclaimed vocal ensemble, Cantiamo! joins the orchestra for Handel’s Psalm 112, Laudate Pueri! The demanding solo part will be performed by another audience favorite, coloratura soprano Lori Schulman. Peter Lemberg solos once again in Chaudoir’s Quartet for Oboe and Strings.” For cost and other information go to https://ensemblemonterey.org/concerts/.
