On my behalf, and on behalf of the Choeur philharmonique du Nouveau Monde-Montreal, I am to inviting you to a concert in the magnificent Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church in Montreal. With winter upon us, we are pleased to offer you the joyful, uplifting music of Antonio Vivaldi.
In the first half, maestro Michel Brousseau and the orchestra will join virtuoso violinist Alexandre Da Costa, both lively, entertaining musicians, in performing The Four Seasons. Mr. Da Costa will be playing his “Deveault” Stradivarius (made in 1701), with all the dynamism for which he is known.
In the second half, the Choeur philharmonique du Nouveau Monde will sing the Gloria, along with our guest soloists, Ania Hejnar, soprano, and Stéphanie Pothier, mezzo-soprano.
Michel Brousseau is the artistic director of the umbrella organization, the Société philharmonique du Nouveau Monde, comprised of the orchestra and three choirs, based in Montreal, the Lower Laurentians, and Ottawa, all of whom will take the stage at Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church at 8 p. m. on Saturday, December 17th.
Please join us for a unique celebration of music that will carry us into the holiday season.
P. S. We hope to see you again at the same venue on May 20, 2023 for our spring concert, the performance of Mozart’s Mass in C minor, KV 427.
