Viva Italia - December 1, 2, 3

Event Details

Classical Series

2018 - 2019

Rossini’s pastoral Overture to Guillaume Tell creates a vivid portrayal of the Alpine landscape, overflowing with luscious and memorable melodies. The sublimely resplendent Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi is the perfect toe-tapping celebration for the holidays, ecstatically bursting with vocal splendor and brass fanfare. Harold in Italy offers a delightful and musical memory book, with gorgeous solo viola--exquisitely played by Nokuthula Ngwenyama--depicting Hector Berlioz’ youthful wanderings in the countryside from Naples to Rome.

*Please note: Saturday and Monday performances begin at 7:30 PM

"... she provides solidly shaped music of bold, mesmerizing character."
