Antonio Vivaldi - "Five Seasons"
Antonio Vivaldi - Gloria
Dr. Maria Manzo, Conductor
Michael Kissinger Jazz Quartet
Bravo! Choir / Northwest Chamber Orchestra
VENUE: The Madeleine Church
This will be the BEST show of the year! We perform two audience favorites by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741). His Gloria is a joyous piece that reflects the vibrant musical life of Venice. The Bravo! Chorale joins with The Madeleine Choir to present this popular piece. Our version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons is something different: it’s The Five Seasons – a cool jazz version of Vivaldi’s music for clarinet, strings, bass, drums and piano. Arranged by Hollywood film composer Jorge Calandrelli, The Five Seasons will be performed by clarinetist Michael Kissinger, his jazz quartet and our Northwest Chamber Orchestra. It’s Carnival time, Ciao!

Handel's MESSIAH - with a Twist!
Michael Kissinger, Conductor
Northwest Chamber Orchestra
Venue: The Madeleine Church
It’s always one of our most popular shows – George F. Handel’s masterpiece MESSIAH performed by our Bravo! Chorale, Northwest Chamber Orchestra & soloists. Beloved around the world by audiences and musicians alike, Handel’s masterpiece has been performed continuously since its premier in 1741. A special ‘twist’ to this year’s concert: YOU – our audience – will join us in singing the Hallelujah Chorus. We’ll have music and give you a ‘crash course’ in singing! It’s a fun way to start your Christmas season!
