Experience two of the most joyous masterpieces ever written for choir and orchestra— works that have only grown in popularity over the last 400 years.
Be overwhelmed by the power of the music inspired by these sacred texts. This is music that transcends ceremony and ideology, finding a profound connection with life, love, and the divine.
Vivaldi was a Roman Catholic priest. Bach was the most celebrated of Lutheran musicians. Despite their divergent religious traditions, these master composers shared a common goal of using their art to bring us all to a deeper faith and more meaningful understanding of the beauty of life.
Saturday evening’s concert was as good as any I have attended the Redlands Symphony in the 17 years I have purchased season tickets.
Anne-Marie McDermott’s performance was absolutely amazing, and it was a rare privilege to be in the audience to hear her perform. The orchestra rose to the occasion, as they have for every concert Maestro Wilson has conducted.
We are so fortunate to have this wonderful director, orchestra, and guest musicians play for us.
