Glorias” of Christmas

by Antonio Vivaldi and Francis Poulenc

Lorton Performance Center/University of Tulsa

Justifiably one of Vivaldi’s best-known works, Gloria was only rediscovered well into the 20th century but has quickly become a worldwide seasonal favorite. It is a sumptuous and exciting choral/orchestral experience. Francis Poulenc’s composition of the same Gloria text pays tribute to Vivaldi’s rhythms, but in an entirely different, but still exciting, tonal and rhythmic language. These two works celebrate the season with vocal fireworks and Christmas color.

Solomon

by Georg Frederic Handel

Boston Avenue United Methodist Church

One of Handel’s lesser-known oratorios, the double-chorus Solomon is exceptionally rich in musical beauty, with dramatic expressions of faith, love, goodness, and humanity. Of Handel’s many oratorios, the composer Felix Mendelssohn was particularly devoted to Solomon. You will see and hear why in this rare performance.

A German Requiem

by Johannes Brahms

Tulsa Performing Arts Center

A work of great humanity and hope, Brahms’ A German Requiem stands as one of the greatest monuments of all choral/symphonic composition. This is a requiem for the living; a personal statement by the composer of inspiration and blessedness. This choral masterpiece explores the depths of consolation and celebrates the heights of joy.
