SATURDAY, APRIL 1, 4 P.M., in the cathedral nave
The Early Music Youth Academy chamber orchestra, part of Seattle Historical Arts for Kids, joins forces with the teen choristers of the Saint Mark's Cathedral Schola for a program of glorious Baroque choral-orchestral favorites. This short and sweet concert of favorite highlights from Baroque choral-orchestral masterworks will include movements from Vivaldi's Gloria, Handel's Messiah, and (especially appropriate for Lent) Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. String students using period bows are joined by their colleague on Baroque bassoon and by guest artist coach Henry Lebedinsky, organ, guest artist Brian Shaw, trumpet, and director Shulamit Kleinerman, violin. Saint Mark's Cathedral Choir School Director Rebekah Gilmore will conduct the ensemble joined by the exceptionally skilled young singers of the cathedral Schola.
Admission is free; free-will donations will be accepted at the event in support of music education at Seattle Historical Arts for Kids and Saint Mark's Cathedral.
