Performing at Seraphic Fire-All Saints Episcopal Church (Mar 23 - Mar 23)
During his time as the maestro of music at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, Antonio Vivaldi wrote many of his most extraordinary works for the young women in residence there. These compositions revolutionized the Baroque cantata, a style that contains some of the most dramatic and virtuosic pieces ever written for the human voice. The musicians of the Firebird Chamber Orchestra are joined by critically-acclaimed soprano Kathryn Mueller for an exciting program celebrating the female voice.
Founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, professional chamber choir Seraphic Fire has garnered critical acclaim both locally and nationally. In an exciting crossover collaboration in 2004, Seraphic Fire was invited to record with international pop-star Shakira on a track for her album Oral Fixation II, which ultimately went Platinum. Seraphic Fire has released four CD recordings to date and will release a fifth next year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. In September of 2007, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation awarded a grant to Seraphic Fire for the formation of a new chamber orchestra.
