We’ve pulled out all the stops to present this monumental work in concert. We are very excited to have 14 of the area’s finest choral singers joining us as guests to make this one of the most significant performances in our history.
Among them is our founding director, Glenn Giuttari, who has returned to join our bass section for this concert. Glenn has frequently joined us throughout the years as an organist, but it is a special privilege to have him singing with us again. It is a very exciting change of pace to have such a large choir, and we can’t wait to share our efforts with you!
Sine Nomine has been invited to sing this work during a Saturday evening liturgy at St. Michael Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Woonsocket, RI. The parish suffered a devastating fire in 2012, and has been working tirelessly to restore their sanctuary. As part of their reopening celebrations, we are privileged to sing this work during their regular Saturday evening worship service.
This 2 hour liturgy will offer a rare opportunity for parishoners, supporters and community members to hear the true wonder of Rachmaninoff's Vespers sung in its original liturgical context.
Please contact the church for details.
